it was 45 years ago today I started writing in earnest
45 years!!! and a ton of completed works (and a more than equal amount
of out takes and fragments and aborted drafts)
that many will never see
but they'll be there for who can receive it
in what state of existence
and what validity and worth affirmed by who will receive
the fruits of these long living years of labor...
to hell with the critics and judges and kibitzers
writing all this and reaching those ears that will hear
is the whole and only point...
