I Hope You Choke On It

Sentimental sentences
chopped up
into pieces
advocating
the lesser emotions
of the heart;
here is the ego
swelled with pain
here is the heart
nurtured in love
here is the self
thinking of itself
and only of itself
here are words
of fools
masquerading
as poets

– A. Ramirez

 

Someone asked me recently what I thought of modern poets and i just kind of shrugged my shoulders. But this sort of sums up my feelings.

And on a side note I think I’m done with poetry. It was fun but there’s not an audience for it. Most people just want to hear about love and being sad and I think there’s power in our words and our words can do so much more than just rhapsodize about falling in love and falling out of love.
