About a writer...

I am an artist
I paint pages with my pen.

I am a sculptor
I sculpt my characters.

I am a genie
I grant them their desires, and mine.

I am a potter
making vessels of clay.
I am the village wife
traveling miles to fill them with water.

I am the sand
that constitutes the vessels
and the clay
that binds it.

I am the driver
who takes them places.

I am the eyes on the street
that observes them
that judges them.

I am the mystic
who knows their future

I am the psychiatrist
who tells them their problems

I am their humility.
But this arrogance is all mine.
