MUNDANE MINUTIA
(9/21/13)


"do you
still write?"

he emails
from a safe
distance

I hate
the question

I can count
my readers
on one hand
and still
have fingers
left over
to flash
a peace sign

I reply
with my website
address

days later
he's back

"most
of your stuff
is such trivial
daily
sameness

does anyone
want to read
about that?

I mean
that's our lives
already"

I tell him
that I'm not
imaginative enough
to write about
those grand
and glorious
ideals
which I
cannot see

I write about
what is
right
in front
of me

it is
real
to me

it is
really
boring
to everyone
else

apparently
