She plants a niggling little thought - This movie's boring! (though it's not) I have something you'd like to see... but, first, I'd have sweet poetry! Anía, please, I'm much too tired... My Dear, I know you're uninspired! I know too well your life is dull - Long, practiced fingers trace my skull... I feel her breathing on my ear - Let go frustrations, lose each care... Now, fill this void with silver tongue; verse for me hard 'til you are wrung! Color your mundane, humdrum life; your ho hum job and tiresome wife... Yes, wield that pen with fingers deft! Submit - you've no resistance left... It's thus, groaning, I oft produce expressive verse for artful muse.

Poetics: Who’s your Muse?
For this challenge, poets are to choose their muses. They may do this in any one of the following ways:
- Write a poem invoking the Muse, and following in the long-established classical tradition.
- Choose one of the nine Classical Muses and write a poem with her particular area of influence in mind (for example, choose Caliope and write a comedic poem)
- Write a poem inspired by your own personal muse, whether that be an individual, a place, or anything else which fires your creativity. You can refer to your muse either directly or indirectly, but some form of reference to your muse as a source of inspiration should be included.
