WORTH | SPARK | PLOT | QUAKE | SPY
And would it have been worth it, after all?
After the broken spark in my plot, after
The twists and turns of character and theme,
After the railroad auto-format that forces me to
Accept a capital letter with every new line I write?
Would it have been worthwhile, if one spy,
Cutting in upon my conversation, would then let loose
Her earthen mind, her sudden quake of skin and light brown
Hair along the back of that gentle arm,
