pretentious poet

and i’ll keep

pretending

to be a poet

deluding myself

of my mastery

of words

with profound

beauty

expressed

in naked

simplicity

using line

breaks

as i please

to add meaning?

i don’t know

shit

breaking rules

without

knowing them

and i’ll keep

pretending

i know

what

i’m doing

writing

shitty poems

like this

for the sheer

enjoyment

of it

hoping that

someday

the lie

becomes

the truth
