false pretense

HIPPER THAN THOU

Folder: 
POESIE HERESY

I was drinking

at the piano bar;

music was playing

and gin & tonics

and dry martinis 

ruled the day.

 

I was largely unimpressed.

I’m not a mover or a shaker

but I do know

a thing or two about booze


and sacraments

are best served without pretense.


The Gods are never impressed

with our bullshit delusions

of sophistication

and totally fucking insane

notions of “hipper than thou”

sick woman

for how long did you 

 

actually believe you 

 

were pulling the wool 

 

over their eyes?

 

pretending to be me,

 

the lies, the betrayal to me,

 

playing, pretending to

 

care. you are sick.

 

i pity you. please 

 

do not ever speak to 

 

me again.
