poem #16

i don't like you
 
I DON’T LIKE YOU
 
“I don’t like your poetry,” a man said to me the other day in the street.
“It’s all everyday observations. Dig for something more interesting.”
Yes, yes, I agreed. I’ll write some good confrontations next.
He walked off smiling. In retrospect, I see
my aesthetic sensibilities
killed the tension.
