Future Reference.

I most certainly
won’t turn out to be
a textbook reference
to “romance poetry”;

the words I write
only seem to spite
the rest of me
with a venomous bite;

perhaps if I wait
they will appreciate
my left-field prose
made from concentrate;

or perhaps, maybe
in the next century
my poems won’t be read
by much of anybody;

damn the legless hypocrisy,
can’t let the critics bother me
no poet ever lives to long enough
to see people fall in love with his poetry.

    the words you write are addictive and wonderful. here’s one who is falling in love before your demise . . .

  2. Whether everyone wants to read or not, sometimes words just need to be shared so people in the future will know we were real, not robots or lemmings. 👀 ♥ * ͜ * ♥ 👀
