Remnants


Whetted pen in hand

The poet completes

His work

Hones

Tightens

Polishes

Vets second thoughts

Breaks bonds with words and phrases

Reworks and purges stanzas

Tosses similes

Discards awkward metaphors

Prunes allegorical branches

Abandons needless accounts —

Dross of the creative process

Poetic remnants.
