Written for me? Written for you?
Whoever likes them best is welcome
to claim the thought, whatever I do.
Hasten to scribble, rush to write,
get it all down by sun or lamp.
Once the document's sealed and sent
is plenty of time for the hand to cramp.
and we can see the picture at last
that smeared across the canvas of our lives
as we performed among an ever-changing cast.
