From The Birthday Letters

Except from "The God"

You were like a religious fanatic.
Without a god--unable to pray.
You wanted to be a writer.
Wanted to write? What was it within you
Had to tell its tale?
The story that has to be told
Is the writer's God, who calls
Out of sleep, inaudibly: 'Write.'
Write what?
