So You’re a Poet

 

hi over
there in
lies
the corner
of thin
wispy
fullness
one of those
pears
with teeth marks
and lipstick
what do you do
as if
missing
apparently not
out of
the light
a fifth martini
how swell yes
and men
that will sleep
for a part of
you can almost
see catalina
in flames
and jets
unzipping
the bay
so you’re a poet
how interesting
