I always forget

no one cares
if you're a poet
when you run around
banging yourself
into their walls
forgetting to crash through
hard enough.

No one cares
if you're a poet
when you walk into
that bar
every night
after night
and listen
to the same
strange song
that no one
how it got
on there

No one cares if you're a poet
when the lights are low
at the library
and the words are at a premium,
but you just have to have some.

No one cares if you're a poet
after they've been sitting down all day
and they need to go outside
for a smoke.

No one cares if you're a poet.
