Michael Cluff- A Poem

Self-Deceptions II

I will continue
to wallow in
the notion talent
won me my job
instead of serendipity
when the better
well-known writer
quit at the last breath
for a nicer teaching gig
near San Diego.
Ego was allowed
to trump extentuating
favorable factors
which have kept me
in the black
for twenty-two years
but minutely angsted and ennuied
about half as long.
