A sobering thought: If I think too much of the LITERARY MARKET, I’ll start molding my poems to the taste of certain popular politicians, whom I despise.

THE GUARDIAN about publishers & authors

Divgray

Says The Guardian:

“In contrast to the decline in earnings of professional authors, the wealth generated by the UK creative industries is on the increase …. If unchecked, this rapid decline in the number of full-time writers could have serious implications for the breadth and quality of content that drives the economic success of our creative industries in the UK.”

Just wondering if this reflects the situation of authors in the USA as well?

On Remembering

Divgray

ON REMEMBERING:

Monuments are built to commemorate murderers, destroyers, and tyrants. No wonder, those are the ones who fear most, especially death.

The true remembrance is like a belated reading—of a mom raped and murdered, of a child who witnessed it and then was turned into a soldier; of a microwaved cat, a horse bitten do death.

The true remembrance is both an expression of and protest against madness.

A Poet’s Dilemma

Divgray

Writing poetry, I feel I do what I must and should do; while, through its lack of interest and support, the society I live in seems to be suggesting, “Drop it and get a REAL job.”
