Setting a price is the foul thing
In the mind of an Emily’s poem.
Self-publishing is  self auction
In cyber desert’s marketplace.
Be  poet about and after death.

Be dead and gone after poetry,
As extrapolation of a long walk
For your inside to watch  dawn
A price received by  mind from
He that gave minds our bodies.

(Referring to Emily Dickinson’s poem Publication-Is the Auction)
