Writing Prompt 46 – I know, But I Don’t kNow

Prompt

“Only the madman is absolutely sure.” – Robert Anton Wilson

On Writing

Breathe the sentence in. Exhale the sentence. Inhale and exhale each word. Now inhale and exhale the sentence. Then, go! There is only one rule, keep your hand moving. Don’t worry about grammar, spelling, or punctuation. If you feel stuck, keep writing anyway. Try going back to the prompt and write it out until other words arise, then write those—or, repeat the last word you wrote again and again until new words appear—or, write, “I am stuck,” or “I can’t think of anything,” as long as you keep your hand moving. Writing is physical, the words will move through your body and come out of your hand—just keep it moving. Now go – for five, ten, fifteen minutes . .   (when you are done, feel free to share your work in the comments – or share on your own blog)

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

  1. Elton John had “Madman Across The Water”. Out here it’s “madman” across the parking lot. In reality, it’s a madman at the front door. Last week a madman forced his way into the office when our office manager opened the door for something else. The doors are locked, otherwise. He found an outlet in the baseboard, plugged in his phone, and told her he needed $20 and to charge his phone. She asked him to leave and he just stood there charging his phone. Our personnel manager walked up to see what was happening. The man wouldn’t leave when she asked him to. I was at my desk at the back of the building when I got a text “Come up front NOW!” I walked up and asked the guy what he needed. He told me he only needed to charge his phone. I told him we had a meeting in a few minutes and that he could not stay in the office unsupervised, he needed to leave. We explained there was a substation in the Transportation Center two blocks away at the end of Gold that would help him. I opened the door for him and again told him he needed to leave. He unplugged his phone and left. Needless to say, we were late getting on our managers’ meeting on Zoom.

    I’m not in the office this week because I have a lot of personal leave to take before the end of January or I’ll lose it. But there’s no rest for the weary in the madman’s world of IT. We had a DDOS attack on our mail server yesterday, which is also our web server, so everything was down until our ISP was able to stop the attack. Today, the copiers won’t scan to email, so I’m trying to remotely troubleshoot that issue. All I want to do is records some music.
