writer as pundit

I am prolifically producing
sentences and couplets
and rhymes of nonsense
to appease no one but me

I toil over every single bit
that I type, erasing and
rewriting over and over
and over again

must I expend so much
energy if the audience is
only yours truly?
my worst pundit is me
I will give everything to
ensure every punctuation
and rhythm is put right

in the end it will be such
a monstrosity that it will
never be read, not a single
soul will gaze on it’s
freakish perfection

please ignore all you
have read, all these
self-aggrandizing
mutterings mean nothing
to anyone but me
