Palimpsest

(Poetry Scales 44)  

If you look closely you may see
An older text under what is me
An old story with other motivations
A sad tale with failures and recriminations
But the way I read now is wholly new
Redemption with triumph and what’s best it’s all true
Oh the flavor’s the same and some letters bleed through
But the author came and rewrote me, new draft: version two
I’ve gone from a failure of the worst sort of genre
To a work of art that shines glory on the writer.
