[#throwbackthursday] writers…, 1977

(Poem from the 1977 edition of Signet Literary Magazine)

writers…

You scribbling lonely souls
living in an age where you don’t belong

feeling tomorrow…
writing yesterday…
putting out today…

knowing it’s no good unless pen and soul are one

subjecting it all…

laying out your inner being for public interpretation
torn
apart
by a
murderer unaware of his guilt

and in the end you are left…

lonely, bloody, and misunderstood

they will understand you–

tomorrow
