Will It Sell? (Written September 22, 2013)

Will It Sell?

 

Is that all you’ve got to say?

Rarely have I seen you at such

A loss for words. Is it something

 

About the way I told the story

That bothers you, that doesn’t ring

True? Well listen, I’m not averse

 

To taking some other point of view,

Yours for example, there could be worse

Fates, though I can’t think

 

Of any at the moment. I’d have to get

Inside your skin, and let myself sink

Into the mush that is your mind,

 

With its obsession with markets,

Awards, first splashes, that kind

Of thing. Will it sell? Fuck

 

That, I’d rather do it myself,

The alternative being to suck

At the public tit, that’s a bit much.
