things i hate about poetry

first of all, I have to waylay
the fiber-optics and cable lines
to say
why so serious?

lonely is a silly word, it is no longer
fully descriptive
of having just a book and a window
to sit and smoke and watch the light
on playing children or the night
on playing teenagers

if your heart beat was not
so f*cking overdone
I might be concerned

pain ought not be used
for the simple fact that now
you as$holes use it to describe EVERYTHING
and honestly have convinced me
to be less self-reliant

if the rain on your break-up
isnít concentrated
acid rain, I donít care

F*ck vampires

I have decided. The right
to define
is long dead.
and I should get over it
but I still say

F*ck acrostics.
