Posted Notes – The Writer




“You do nothing all day,”

The critics always say.


The art of sitting, reflecting, writing –

Not a thing for dinner-party boasting.


It lacks the luxury of visibility,

Starkly contrasting to venal money-making;


One does not require a suit,

Or need a train to commute


To satisfy prejudices,

So as to comply with mores.
