yes I know there are those who won’t classify this as poetry with a capital P, but I don’t give a shit

I learned early
that critics,
you know, those
sad self important
residents of the region
just outside the
reaches of the light
are not to be
taken seriously

they will, usually
with as much bluster
as they can,
tell anyone within earshot
what should
be classified as art
and what should not

sadder still is how often
their opinion is given
an undo amount
of weight
when, if history is
to be a guide,
they, over time are
almost always
proven wrong
