I’m the scribble in the margin, scrawled in pencil long ago,
The addendum to the mainstream, watching words lined up in rows
Of printed letters, filed in regiments, the mainstream, marching dead,
All the massed ranks of instructions, without questions, set in lead.
I’m the inscribed faint notation that the publishers ignored,
The unknown mark in just one copy of the widely printed horde.
The now unnoticed proof correction, unread, sitting by itself,
In the margin of the book of lies upon some dusty shelf.
