Real Poetry

Or maybe the suggestion from the mouths of

Listeners would be to spend more time meticulously

Cultivating the speech, shaping each line and spending

Countless hours editing, forming the rhyme scheme

Perfectly until someone else decides that my poem

Reads as if a constipated rich person wrote it, so then

Perhaps I will be accepted into some fancy program

And published for other uptight virgin assholes

To peruse, surface-level in an intro class, somewhere.
