Knows it all

Met this kid

who asked why I looked

the way I looked

and I said it’s cause I wanted

to look

the way I looked

and he said it wasn’t much

to look at

and I saw myself

for the first time,

though I had to look

away.

You’re a poet

so

you should read this other poet

because she knows it all

about the assonance and resonance

and villanelle and dactyl

and anapest  and antagonist

and enjambment and tercet

and pyrrhic and lyric

and her fiction is unparalleled

with its wholesome denouement

and asyndeton that isn’t tireless

and subplots that bolster the sum

and characters which are right there

beside you as you read for she

has placed your whole life in a short

sentence

and you can see all what could’ve been

and what couldn’t have as well

and her journalism is renowned too,

and look there she is walking

with a pen and paper in her hand

noticing it all

while she passes her own face

on newsstands

alongside smut and grub and a penny novel

of yours if you’re lucky

and you walk to the display

to grab some excitement

but she doesn’t look

your way
