Love Songs for Strange Men in Dark Bars - Adam Pond

I want you to buy me

a red beret.

I can be yours.

It can be yours.

But I will wear us.

I’ll buy you a jumper

and vice

the verse.


I asked you

and myself

and I

how to be an artist?

I told them,

all you need is suffering

and a vision.


I feel a tremendous distance

between myself.

Not you.

But everything real.


Shockingly,

This is how I am supposed to feel.

Alive and real.

As true is false

I feel my pulse.


You are not a poet

if you are not me

and you are a cunt

but neither

am I.


I feel

as a creative hearse

dragging my body

through the verse.
