POEM: “Unfinished”



*inspired by Douglas Adams’s intro to P.G. Wodehouse’s Sunset at Blandings


An intro written to the unfinished

novel of his literary idol,


included in the collection published

posthumously of his own unfinished




An author’s work is never done

Too soon it’s never finished


always .



Although I wrote it for a different reason, this poem seemed appropriate today, because tonight is the memorial open mic for local poet and awesome person, Vertigo Xi’an Xavier. He was a fixture in the Northeast Ohio poetry community and will be sorely missed.

I hope you enjoyed the poem, and please come back next Friday for (hopefully) some big news! In the meantime, have a lovely week.
