A Lifelong Brush With Obscurity

Obscurity

Contact with anybody
who has produced work of quality
fills me with a thwarted yearning empathy,
an implausible sense of fraternity,
a melancholy sting. Regret and resentment
gnawing at me, eating me alive.
This is what you reap
when you haven’t sown anything.

  1. Contact with anybody
    who has produced work of quality
    fills me with a thwarted yearning empathy,
    an implausible sense of fraternity,
    a melancholy sting. Regret and resentment
    gnawing at me, eating me alive.
    This is what you reap
    when you haven’t sown anything.

    compliment!
