not remotely

i’m not one of those pretentious poets
that will grow his hair all long and wear a leather jacket to facade his uncoolness

i’m not one of those pretentious poets
that will scream the virtues of non-conformance but secretly resents every fucking rejection letter

i’m not one of those pretentious poets
that will overact a recital to cover up that i can’t write for shit, but after the champagne and canapes and schmoozing, i still wouldn’t mind a blowjob from the brunette in the front row with the glint in her smile and the ralph lauren frames
in the cloak room, or
in the car park, or
on the bus on the way back to her apartment,
where she’ll let me make her
squirl and screee

i’m not one of those pretentious poets
who needs valium to wash down his beer to write, anything, remotely
