When the Words Go on Strike

When the Words Go on Strike

I negotiate.
Try to point out
the importance of pace,
that rhyme has its place,
the factors considered
as to where the lines break.

I reaffirm that
all words are equal
in value and
a spot in the title
is not top billing.

I sympathize that
some will be taken out
through the revision process,
but stand firm against
issuing any no-cut contracts.

What do you do when the words go on strike?
