769 Write It Right or not at all 5-28-18

Writing junk
takes its toll
not just on aspirations,
but on my soul.

If I can’t offer
a cup of pristine water
to my reader,
it is no better barter

to construct a Versailles fountain
fed by – slightly – polluted streams
and to be satisfied with that!
Rather sever hand and bury pen

than to accept that I have wrought
a poem – almost – the best I can.
