Dear Mr. Frost, I do not think this path is wide enough for the two of us. There is a road you’ve traveled, that I’d like to tread; But, Mr. Poe, my rapid heartbeat is driving me mad with its unrelenting T H U M P I N G; So I must ask, Mr. Whitman, should I crush the noiseless patient spider with my heel, or nurture it in my palms? Where, Mr. Heaney, my pen does lie, nice and snug. It etches my page, like a spade to earth. It cuts away at the diverging wood, to forge a path anew, one, where only I, have stood.
