MISTER WRITER IN THE COFFEE SHOP

It is expected that I affect
– with a beret or some other literary cap –
the effect of a poet.
I contrive to be caught
in pyjamas during daylight
to elicit exclamations ;
how bohemian!
My cardigan must not be darned,
those holes speak volumes
about my talent with words.
Don’t dare to bore me
with washing-machine drivel,
my lofty mind is above all that;
have you read my latest book?

  1. You are a veritable fountain of creativity. I can’t get that kind of flow going very often at all. Are you going to put together a chapbook or do yu already have one?
