She folds a sheet of paper and tosses it aside:
Another clichéd paragraph, of hundreds that she’s tried.
It’s time to take a break for lunch; that’s all she wants to do.
A tiny primate cranium awaits her, full of goo.
What a novel meal to make, so awkward to explain.
When writer’s block is hard to shake, she eats a monkey’s brain.
Monkey brains. Monkey brains. Monkey brains. Monkey brains.
She recalls an early lesson from her bygone college days,
That a thousand monkey typists could write all of Shakespeare’s plays.
They say that you are what you eat, and cannibals concur.
Would a thousand small cerebra give those writing skills to her?
She eats them ’til she spews out tales a thousand pages long:
Descriptions of a world where she would quote unquote belong.
A thousand monkey lunches, no more balanced than herself.
A flurry of rejection slips, a slow decline in health.
It dawns on her one morning when she steps onto her scale:
She used too many monkeys, and it’s left her thin and frail.
She rushes to her office and begins to dance a jig.
