For Pleasure

One of the better things about poetry
Is that a poem can be a pleasure to write
Even when it is less than pleasurable to read

This may take the reader a long way
To understanding why I keep writing
When others do not keep reading

Yes, writers write because they are compelled to write, not because it matters whether anyone reads them.
