Writing longform prose

Because I write so fluently
I often do not write so well.
I let redundant words abound,
Forget to tweak for how it sounds,
Forget to prune my sentences
To their digestible essense.
I write without a clear thought
And hide behind vocab a lot.
I write with more authority
The lesser I have clarity.
Some days I do it even worse:
Forget the form and write in verse.
