Don'T Try To Write For The Masses - Poem by Patti Masterman
Don't try to write for the masses-
Your sleight-of-the-hand phrase of articulated beauty
Will scarcely be acknowledged.
The subtle twist of rhythm escapes their notice;
The artist knows all this by heart;
He only writes now to try and save himself.
I have known astounding works
Untouched by human hands, never visited
But once: the discovery by only one
Enough to save whole lifetimes.
