What They Never Say:

I.
When you told your sick dick jokes
in poetic form
at the open mic I happened to be attending
I understood why true art was
and that I had to manage you.
I just spoke to my other clients
and Bono and Sting understand;
they’re gonna have to take a back seat
while I put a plan together
to make sure your poetry is heard
in every household in the world!

II.
When you aggressively commanded my attention
shouting over my quiet conversation
with girlfriends
I realized how much I wanted you
and needed to make you mine.
Forgive me my trespasses
and take me home with you.

III.
Thanks for shaking up the club tonight.
The regulars were a little out out
but
if they don’t see the value
in your art
they should be chastened.
They should be run out.
This club of mine
needs to be more of a salon
and I should be more
of a patron of the arts.
My first movement
in this regard
is to ask
what I can do for you
