How to Write a Masterpiece

Start with truth:
the kind that kills,
and dissolve the 'I',
which if properly distilled,
speaks naught but all 
that falls betwixt the lines.

This breath, this ether,
that which is pure of day,
must linger wholly
on the page,
and all emotion,
the ghost of soul,
must barrel forth 
to take control...
it is then
dear friends,
that a 
is exposed.

    Such a truism, especially relating to poetry which is an emotional art.
