Musings / Poems

Your target audience hates it.

Is it too happy? Too sad?
Too much blood? Just plain bad?
Is it facile, elitist?
Too ordered, poor neatness?
Too high brow, too low;
understated, too show-
y; too shallow, intense;
opined, on the fence;
too blah, too exciting;
too slow, fast as lightning;
too detailed, too macro;
unoriginal, a long bow;
too country, too chic;
oh-so-vague, no mystique;
too loose, or too tight?
Or is it really just right?

As a writer you risk never quite making do
if you aim to please any one outside of you.
