The Marginal Writer

when something happens
it happens suddenly
without warning or fanfare
a token of appreciation
that the work matters

but you may remain ignorant
for a long time
before getting word
a shocking discovery
now they tell me!

and the feeling is wonderful
you made a contribution
and you ride the wave
for as long as you can
which is never long enough

until life is normal again
filled with no clue whatever
that the work actually matters
and your professional life
is more than jacking off
