Opening Reception February 15 from 7 - 10 pm

if it doesn’t come bursting out of you
in spite of everything, 
don’t do it. 
unless it comes unasked out of your 
heart and your mind and your mouth 
and your gut, 
don’t do it. 
if you have to sit for hours 
staring at your computer screen 
or hunched over your 
typewriter searching for words, 
don’t do it. 
if you’re doing it for money or fame, 
don’t do it. 
if you’re doing it because you want 
women in your bed, 
don’t do it. 
if you have to sit there and 
rewrite it again and again, 
don’t do it. 
if it’s hard work just thinking about doing it, 
don’t do it. 
if you’re trying to write like somebody 
else, 
forget about it.

–Charles Bukowski
