Saying What’s Important

One good reader
is all any writer needs
wrote Henry Miller,
& that statement
was enough to
drive 632 writers
to suicide,
three to
national recognition,
& 16,000
into a
lifetime of
day jobs.

 

Then there’s
the handful
who understood
what he meant &
are untouchable
by fame or flattery.

 

Taking all this
into consideration,
Miller has
to be
the most
important writer
of the
Twentieth Century.
