Dear Poets About Whose Work I Feel Ambivalent, sometimes those sounds are nice, and I want to thank you for being brave enough to take the mic on a quiet night at the karaoke bar, ignoring the lines that scroll by while the actors pretend to be in love in the park, walking hand in hand as the low-res sky turns purple. I want to thank you for making me ask myself if I actually enjoy the taste of pomegranate or simply the newness on the tongue. And when I decide to go back to the cranberry that’s been keeping my urine so clean, please don’t be offended in the least; I just prefer to sing in the car and tell stories at the bar.
