Chris, I apologize for not noticing it before but this poem was already published back in March. Published pieces show up in original date order on the W&W page, so yours, due to its date, doesn’t appear on the front page. Sorry about that. I should have noticed it wasn’t a draft and sent you a note. It’s published and it will be under “archive” but not on the front page. Please submit drafts so your work isn’t buried. Thanks!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
