Poetic Asides Prompt Friend of a Friend

It’s Not Over Till It’s Over

My friend’s friend has had about
eighty of her novels published.
Every time she’d see me,
she’d ask about my manuscripts,
until she finally stopped asking.
She said something about failure.
As long as I have breath,
I’m writing and submitting work.
I didn’t hear any fat lady singing.

If there's no fat lady, then it aint over yet.
