How to get to Carnegie Hall.

But seriously,
I’m a simpleton
don’t know fecal matter
from Shinola

I awake to read critical theory
then intersect the sunset
with scribes the likes of Kirk and Burke
and occasionally Oakeshott who
claims one should practice all things

excepting poetry,
You can’t exercise poetry
-one simply poems

maybe-

verse has no reason
with shape a slight treason
Where lines give lie to those
seasoned lives mapped;

never, no never, to matter
the moment
