I always hated being called poet
but I guess shoe fits.
it’s certainly a
suitable nominal title
even though I never majored in English.
and sure I never read Austin
it’s okay; neither did they.
they only wrote a bunch of essays
and haven’t since the day they graduated
I guess now we’re on the same page
I’m admittedly a slow reader
no clue how the sociohistorical context reflects any way I try to create.
you really think that was on the mind of any single one of the greats?
I mean maybe.
I don’t know.
I haven’t studied.
You can shut me up easily.
I fall swiftly to someone seeming more pretentious than me.
I know it’s “I”
