A Poem: The Hardest One to Get 

The poet who types manuscripts
must be very confident,
vain, and full of poise.

The poet who writes in bound, unlined books
knows what is to be saved
and what will pass the test of time.

The poet who scribbles on small sheets of paper
is cautious
and needs comfort from others.

The poet who writes on clean white socks
and throws them away
is the one who needs to be read.
