what do you think of this
fame can ruin a writer
that somehow
those of us that are scratching
to get down some sort of
can get thrown for a loop
by someone actually saying
look hereís some money
for the next two books
seems to me that could mess up
the artistic flow
seems to me that could put
wrong kind of pressure on a person
seems to me
living in obscurity isnít as bad as it seems
is it
I mean I like what I write
for the most part
I have the freedom to write what I want
when I want how I want
maybe even if it doesnít pad the ole account
at least I am free to
explore my own dimensions
as I see fit
nobody looking over my shoulder
no pressure
wow kinda takes the pressure off
this thought this freedom from wanting
a piece the literature pie
I donít have to worry about it
nobody wants me
itís liberating actually
itís wonderful
I love being free
is there a publisher in the house?
just kidding
