Editing is free

to edit
or not to edit
I want to scream
tear at the pages
drop adjectives as I please

why would I care
freewriting away
counting words
as if
there is a finish line

I bow my head
let’s edit
cut away sir
archaic prose notwithstanding

That's uncommon poetry. Good and unique. It's a edit, let's edit the writing and the life until you do not need to edit anymore :)
