#Poem Crafty

Your poems are all forgeries –
imitations of old masters with your name on.

You say,
my laziness has become transfigured into arrogance.
You say,
other stuff which I’ve conveniently forgotten.

You run,
escape from shadows, adopt postures,
yadda, yadda, despise the dark;
despise those who therein tread.

Today,
for a second,
for a change,
like a friend,
you consider other options…
then you stay safe.

You pay the bills –
an excellent scheme:
status first;
heart second.
Good luck.
