Reblogged from the Lexington Poetry Month blog.
how slowly the world of publishing
Success seems so sudden
when you aren’t a part
of the process. Writers seem to
burst onto the scene
from nowhere and shoot
to great heights but they don’t.
They edge their way
in with this piece and that, testing
the water, slowly
a reputation, showing
they can nail
a brief and hit a deadline.
