List Poem: Writer 5

publication short story shelved

took it to war

wrote during active deployment

wrote amidst atrocities

wrote to save his soul

the book was born in battle

did his own editing

no changes allowed

at liberation of Dachau

maddened by war

work came first

DO NOT DISTURB

disconnect with lovers abrupt

writing was his permanent Mistress
