Tragedy Minus Consequence Equals Honesty

"In college, they allow you to be entertained and let your mind wander, which is not good training to do anything difficult." ~Nell Zink

I'm not broken, only busted
In various, irrelevant
Ways to a writer of fiction,

Believe me. Belief will set you
Free. Nothing is all that funny
To a writer without readers

Who composes without writing
On a device made from millions
Of lives suffering through a world

Made from countless lives suffering.
I don't need your empathy. You
Are alive, too. More's the witty.
