she was just starting to write…

three years
of a sixty year life

created three thousand pages
in that three years

then, exhausted,
outcast

wasted
away

unrecognized
into oblivion

oh, she came back
in fits

a few times, yes
spasms

like a drowning man
gulping for air…

… think of the poems
unwritten

what a bunch of
primitives

how could they have let
that happen?
