How Much Of It Is Vanity

How much of writing is vanity?
How much of it is bullshit?
Which is from experience
And which is pulled from the sky?
How much of writing
Is the gravel burning blisters on your feet
How much of it
Is the stars above the water at 3AM
Or the dark eyed angel in your bed
Or the hot tea cooking your tongue
Or that deep and weary sigh
At the thought of going in to work
When the sun still has hours left in the sky
And the river still pulls lovingly at your feet
