Poetry #72
(published Early, 2002)
The Medium and the Message
by Rochelle Hope Mehr

The ink was barely dry on the parchment when the scrivener proclaimed the author of the screed a genius. The literati agreed.

The printing press made his words more accessible to the public and hastened the development of his loose-lipped style.

The Internet sealed his fate when he watched his words wax, waver, and then blur into the oblivion they deserved.
