One Fish, Two Fish

“Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary.”-Kahil Gibran

I went to a poetry reading tonight. I learned a few things.

I don’t even like poetry, but shockingly, some people who read at poetry readings are really good. This girl wrote a dirty poem about cheese that rocked my socks.

Most people who read at poetry readings take themselves entirely too seriously.

Men who don’t get laid who read at poetry readings (i.e. all of them) try to rhyme “desire” with “fire” all too often. You’d have poetry about sex if you were actually having it.
