A Room of My Own: A Dead Man Writing

For Ernest Hemingway who claimed that
The important thing for a writer is to tell a good story... The best ones are liars.

at daybreak
Death has a boot
on my neck
the first line for him
I'm a slave to words

Who is really interested in reading your poetry? A smirk on his face.
I have nothing important to write, I say, All I can do is sit down at the computer and bleed. If no one reads it, you, Death, will be my reviewer.


  1. How erroneous!! So many learners like me have followed your work & are inspired with it. I guess all creative stalwarts go through this phase, you are no exception. Therefore persist. I love your work._/|\_ Namaskar an Indian greeting meaning I bow to the qualities imbibed in you.

  2. Many thanks for your kind words and for your support of my work.
