Under the sun

Every time I’ve written a poem —
Starting to think it’s good —
Emily D — has already said it
better than I ever could —

    If with the literate I am
    Impelled to try an epigram,
    I never seek to take the credit;
    We all assume that Oscar said it.
    — Dorothy Parker

    I presume this is what you were referencing. And yes, Emily got there ahead of the rest of us.

      No, I wasn’t alluding to that, but it’s the same feeling. Oscar Wilde, I guess she means. I’ve never seen that before. I probably should read more of Parker.
