It’s so easy to write. Just make your poems,
essays, stories, novels, plays, serious and
socially committed, as the canaille and
elite doggedly dictate.
And don’t forget the god, the editor.
Watch his Damoclean scissors.
Watch your commas, colons, conjunctions,
Your rubber stamps, form, logic, substance.
Forget your style. His is yours.
Write, submit, die.
