To One Who Thinks No One Gets Her: Revolutionary IMprov Poem

February 18, 2011

You’re gotten
by no one?
Do I now
as no one?

Nobody can do
the boogalo
like I do,
but it’s no fun
to be someone’s
no one.

Shall I now regret
that we ever met?
That I ever heard you vet
“wow, you really get

Though you’re lonely
you’re not so undone
as to have no one.
You still have me.

The Poet Compared to Sum Yung Guy: A Restaurant Romantic ConTEXTing Poem

U sighed: He/
was lovely/
in his physicality,/
and I saw/
a trace/
of melancholy,/
deep, raw,/
cross yer face./
that he/
isn’t me/
who gets U and rites/
deep poetry.
