The Common Writer

The one who has
A Masters of Divinity
Has mastered Divinity not
And the one who has
Mastered the pen
Eventually becomes a blot

For the writer’s words
Outlive the writer, yes
The page is their home to dwell
Made up of many letters
And old recycled characters
It’s really Time’s story to tell

-T. Michael W. Halcomb, Dec. 2010
Inspired by George Steiner’s “Uncommon Reader”
