+ Fav Poet


My mother is a kind of person on the planet
Who cannot watch movies on tv or the internet
Because she thinks they're real.

I tell her of the video shoots
And say it's just a movie.
She leans back and at me she hoots
'My boy don't be a rookie'.

And so I linger with the rest
Of borrowed video tapes.
Mama home like a house arrest
My mocking brother gapes.

I still can't watch Spartacus,
Vampire Diaries nor Nikita.
Daily we watch In Focus
From Voice of America.
