The Inspiration Issue

knowing I’m into poetry
a friend
gave me a copy of:
Poets & Writers Magazine
I flipped through the pages
a nice looking magazine
a real pro
the fucking big time, but
all I see are ads
low residency MFAs
blah, blah, blah
an interview with a graphic designer
more bullshit
seems like this is made for
the left liberal elite
the hipster kid
blindly listening to her dubstep
doesn’t know an ounce about
his pseudo-politics
I flip through the pages
all I see are ads
more ads
not a single
Poem
not one
I’ll use the pages to clean
my windows

only an asshole
would pay 100,000 grand
to go to poetry
school
