All around us are writers and artists
Even if they are only moonlighting
Dabbling in experimental expressions

Some are pouring drinks for taste
For how they make us feel
Not fishing for complimentary bites
Nor just trying to make a sale

We are inundated by creativity
Audience to glimpsed identities
Welcoming whatever’s shown
However and whenever artists choose

Others are bating agents
Begging for publication
Seeking the mighty dollar
To validate their passion

But I am not privy to the funded works
I do not care how popular your writing gets
Because the most compelling pieces I’ve read
Are handwritten love letters

With an audience of one
