where the writers are
The Writer

I cannot go out
Today to play,
For I am writing
A book.
Cannot deal with
The superficial,
The insipid,
Inconsequential ---
Please take note,
For I am writing
A book.
Have no time
For you
Or me
Or even tea
For two or one,
For I am
Writing a book.
Yes, I know,
It’s been awhile,
And I now should
Have time, but
Now you see
I don’t ---
For I have
Written a book.
