literature? i think so :-)


From "archys life of mehitabel" by Don Marquis.

the stuff of literature

thank your friends for me for
all their good advice about how to
work your typewriter but what i have
always claimed is that manners and methods
are no great matter compared
with thoughts in poetry you can't hide
gems of thought so they wont flash
on the world on the other hand if you press
agent poor stuff that wont make it live
my ego will express itself in spite of
all mechanical obstacles having something
to say is the thing being sincere
counts for more than forms of expression thanks
for the doughnuts

archy signs off to the right, the 'a' below the 'i' of 'expression'. blogspot wont allow me to do this.
