Use It Or Lose It

My hands have stopped working, they’ve dried up and said goodnight.

They have decided that they no longer want to write and write and write.

My hands have been protesting, making sure I know when I’m doing poorly, writing down the wrong things.

Use it or lose it but what if you use it and you still lose it?

Nobody talks about that sort of thing, the hankering need to DO something that you just can’t do, the drying up of inspiration, the faulty clacking of your brain when nothing is coming out.

Use it or lose it or lose it because you use it, put your teeth in a vice and lock yourself in your room until you do it.

What if you don’t know what you’re using, can you still lose that?
