an irony in the posting

From time to time I need to leave my words behind
not to be read or wondered at or otherwise considered
but rather left to die the death of progress made in increment
the writer’s daily dose of attrition from his mind
past ego, beyond plot construction, beneath the hatching of infant worlds
a token sacrifice to the very process itself
a measure of the writer’s ability to generate words
as well as endure the mortality of those words
and accept how that reflects upon the writer himself

  1. how lucky we are, the readers, for the words “left behind”
