poets these days

poets these days
always using words that no one knows
words that no one needs to ever know
theyre constantly alluding to god knows what
in their attempt to thumb their pseudo-elitist noses
at the bukowskis standing beside the red wheelbarrows
drinking beer
an intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way
an artist says a hard thing in a simple way
but what do i know, im drunk

    Thank you Barbara. It's a celebration piece of Bukowski and Williams Carlos Williams. :)

    Thank you so much Wole. I am fairly new to writing poetry, and have virtually never read poetry so I don't know where I stand. You have given me confidence and that is greatly appreciated. All the best, Kellen. :)
