In Brief

Obsolescence (will probably be changed soon)

Does this world have any use for me?
Can a writer survive in a world that doesn't read?
I could write for television, perhaps
Journey through the vast wasteland in hopes of expanding it.
Movies are drifting to a dark, damp place
The days of Citizen Kane unfortunately long gone.
Perhaps pure poetry will survive,
Though the poets themselves may starve.
If so,
I will stand among the hungry with pride.
I hope it will not come to that.
I desperately hope it will not come to that.
I may be obsolete
But I still work.
