"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Time and All

My fantasy is a room
Where I could take all my work
And step aside out of time

And do one thing at a time
And finish it all and have room
For the play that should come after work.

The thing is, it wouldn’t work.
Without the pressure of time
I’d just play in the timeless room.

There’s room. I’ll have to work on time.
