The editor in me

The editor in me

By L. Stewart Marsden


I find myself rewriting
writhing in the pain of words selected;

I find myself detecting
projecting what I think should be elected;

I cannot keep my mind
in line
with what I find and not dissect it;

It is my call
to fall
on all I read and to reject it.

    Been there, done that – – repeatedly. Guess that ends when you die. Like the piece.

    The piece ends when I die . . . or you like the piece? (Sorry, the editor in me)
