NaPoWriMo – April 16 – “Self-Censored”

Everything I write
Is always tempered
By my awareness of

career
reputation
family
readers

So I’m very careful
And I pull punches
Just in case.
Can’t risk saying something

embarrassing
incorrect
unpopular
political

There is no disavowal.
Nothing ever dies on the Internet.
It’s never lost.
Not when you want it to be.
