Muse Fired

I fired last muse

She was too cavalier

Careless about deadlines

Prompts, forms

Had “attitude” which

Wasn’t admirable

Arrogance I didn’t

Appreciate…as though

She knew better than I

The memories which haunt

Me, the unmet hopes

Desires, dreams

She began acting like

She was the poet

Possessor of gift, and

I merely supplied

Ink-filled quill

Finest papyrus…

Rumor is, she’s working
