A duo

I. Nobody knows him

This man
is doomed.
Noone
will ever
know him
for the
wonder-
fully
mediocre
poetry
he wrote.


II. Everybody knows him

And
nobody
knows him
for real.
He wrote
“The
Achiever,
A Poem
In Eight
Acts,”
which
became
famous
because
of the
unspeakable
seventh
act.

You would love 'The City of the Dreaming Books'. I've already wanted to give it to you before.

Whoops, this confusion of masks is embarrassing. 'The City of the Dreaming Books' is worth a read, all the same. Regards :)
