What Poetry? I Don't Have Any Poetry (a poem)

What Poetry? I Don’t Have Any Poetry


The other day
I read about the poet
who got to read
and sign his books
at Harvard
his books of haiku
that aren’t haiku
just greeting card
love notes
dressed in little
cardboard cut-out
suits of sincerity
sickeningly sweet
if swallowed in
mass doses
and I said to myself
what a wonderful world
that he has to do that
and I don’t
because I sure couldn’t
face a crowd
with art like that
in my hands
not looking down
at all those eyes
expecting to hear
something
that might save them
something
that might forgive them
when all I have to give
is reality in pieces
so I’d learn
very quickly
how deep in my pockets
my hands could go.
