a simple art

the work of the underdog
is revealed to be a masterpiece
the work of those higher
on the ladder, only pleasing to
the eye – i’d rather have
a masterpiece of a thousand simple words
than a work built on pretentiousness
leaving my mouth dry

arranging ambience

words, they like to dash across paper
but not before they crash into each other
or slash at my thoughts of others
or lash out over my feelings for others –
but when i get the chance, i try to lace
them together in a little dance, arrange
them into something a little less messy,
i don’t mean to change them,
just the ambience

a fraud

where is the truth
in your poetry
if the hues you write
with, you choose to peel
and scrape off of a
not of your on making
but of a fabricated,
elegant forgery
