dearth

poets who write about writing poetry
are un – publishable today,
i read.

well, the truth never had a pretty face anyway,

and given the scarcity of poets
toiling on such a theme
will tell you why ;

either that or i can just take

a long fucking hard look at my rejection letters
and have the truth
wear
its clown mask on.

    “The truth never had a pretty face”
    Not the ugliest, though. 🙂
