I Hate Writing

Reading books in Yerevan, Armenia

The truth is that I hate writing.
Putting words on paper makes my stomach turn.
My sentences are undigested thoughts.
My poetry is brain vomit.

I think it’s because I read too much.
Reading is like eating – the amount of shit that you will produce is proportional to the amount of food you have consumed.

But when you eat too much, you’ll puke.
And when you read too much, you’ll write.

But, of course, there are different types of writers. For instance, there are those who write without reading too much. Their works are not vomit.

It’s their feces you are deciphering.
