IT GOES DOWN LIKE THIS

i am not gonna write
poems about
fucking
i am not going to
write
poems
about broken hearts
and young love
i am not gonna write
poems about the government
and how lousy they are
i am not gonna write
poems about gay people
let them alone to
enjoy
i am not gonna write poems
about grandmom and grandpop
i am not gonna write
poems about children
i am not gonna write about
teenagers who begin to
fuck at the
age of twelve
i am not gonna write poems
about old age
and dying
i am not gonna write
poems about
the days when i fucked a
lot of women in
whore houses and
went to the burlesque houses
i am not gonna write about
death and
how it feels to die
because i don’t know the answer
as a matter of fact
i am not even gonna
write this poem any
longer
you get what
i mean?
