Chopping Writers' Block

When words refuse to come to me --
the nightmare of a writer --I come to them; I read.

I will coax them to me, tease them and flatter them.
   "I can show you a good time."

I will watch you weave worlds
with letters and spaces and punctuation.
And if the words still refuse to come to me?--

I'll fucking kidnap them.
