Let It Be Said.

"but miss america
in her fishnets
had a misfit."
-jake

let it be said
poets must struggle
but must the struggle
be comitted
just for the primary purpose
of a slim, stylish, well-done volume
of marketable verse
just to pay the goddamn rent?

fuck that.
a poet should struggle for joy
above all else.

we are here
in fishtanks of rage
in fishnets of shame
yearning for meaning
in the deluded popularity of a populace persona
of a post-post-modern inside joke.

tragedy?
