Who Is There to Tell?

Since I was 17 years old or so,
I’ve wanted to be
Hemingway and Fitzgerald
And later, Bukowski, Uncle Walt
And Roethke and Robert Sund,
I’ve wanted to write things
That people would read
And remember and remember me
for having written.




No Matter What People Tell You, Words And Ideas Can Change The World.
