​What We Talk About When We Talk About Confessional Poetry


You know what, Matt?

Who are you to think about anything

Beyond the trees and leaves,

The light & darkness?

 

Staple the poems together.

Look out the window.

Daydream.

Staple the stories together.

 

Always so full of questions,

Suppositions, imaginings,

Lists, calumnies, words…

Sometimes you’re all words!

 

Peace lies deeper than a platitude

So always remember and never forget  

To shave off the belly hair.

The first cut must be clean.
