Poetry from the Creek
A personal collection of poetry ...
18 October 2008
what would you pay for a scam
to lift you off the back page of
anonymity – boldly launch you
into life as a poetic celebrity?
the fee’s lame-duck-ass integrity
in tatters – meaningless as the
random IP addresses appraising
a wholly imagined faux esteem
amazingly numbers seem more
meaningful to your peers than
words written; be that as it may –
