EVANESCENT VOCATION
(2/1/14)


"you're not
a writer
if you're not
published"

she told
me

"it's such
a waste
of time"

I agreed
with her

I was not
a writer

only because
I happened
not
to be writing
at that instant

for these
few minutes
however
I am a writer
of unaccomplished
degree

life was
so much more
livable
when no one
knew
of these desperate
lines

still
I take comfort
in scribbling
my soul

knowing
that this work
will never
be known
to be forgotten
