Shitty Poems

Sometimes I write a poem

And I’m like

“That’s it. That’s the one

I’m gonna be

incredibly infamously famous

From sea to shining sea”

And then–

Nothing. Nobody

Reads it or understands,

Or cares, I guess.

Or it just didn’t hit them

In that really sore, soft

Weak and bruised spot

On their chest.

Other times

I write a poem

On the toilet

In the heat of a bowel movement

And everyone cheers!!

Everyone loves it

Authenticity for days, weeks, even


All hail the poop poet!

I’m here to sit!

I’m regular, now

I used to shit


Now I just shit
