BALZAC WROTE NOVELS

Folder: 
MEANDERTHAL MAN

 

Balzac wrote his novels

and I drank

a beer

to salute him

tho many in the industry

felt I shoulda been

writing my own.

 

but

the beer kept flowing

and I kept

pouring the contents

down my throat

still desperately clinging

to naïve notions

of poetic grandeur.

Poetic Grandeur

Are you intimating that it does not exist? Oh, that cannot be, else my whole life has been, well poetry. The goal was grandeur. There is no goal, like there is no spoon? Damn! :D
