{Poetry} Writer’s Contract

The rules of writing are not handcuffs for the writer
Nor a gavel for the reader

But a contract between them,
ensuring, respectfully,
as much as is possible, that
Two people, miles, years, and lives apart
Might sit down to tea
And share one’s ideas

Without the other
taking things the wrong way
so easily
