Pretentious Roman Numeral Poetry


i wish i could write like
the “spoken word girls”
can belt out poetry,

like weapons.


walking quietly down the road,
she jumps and i avert my gaze,
some would say the evil of other men
shames me, still
the great lengths i travel
to prove my innocence
to unaccompanied strangers


the waitress hands me the check
and smiles. i wonder if she smells my
cologne, wants to fight the girl i’m with,
will blow this tip on blunts on booze,
like a normal person would
