#020: When we talk about reps

When we talk about putting the work in

We demystify magic

De-taboo the word effort

Relinquish the power mistake and mediocre play

In the trap door of the brain that’s lined

With cinnamon sugar and your favourite re-runs

And amongst all of the options available to you

You choose to be here

Putting that work in

Posting prior to perfection

Posting before the night says the day is done

And it’s 12:01

And you’ve missed the deadline

The self-imposed structure you make

To house this thing called craft

Which you’d rather call play

(I guess you could)

‘Cause you’re both the teacher dishing out the discipline

And the student scratching prose into the desk instead of listening.
