markers are best left
to editors
so my dear, let’s edit

a writer must know
what words to say, and what
to leave an unanswered


so darling, type out your work.
by hand or by print
bring out a pen

and sweep broad strokes
or thin edge scribbles
across the the’s and
inordinate adjectives
then snip away the excess

leaving blots of black
on the page, and the rest
well, here’s hoping its

but let’s take it further.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
