Sincerest Flattery

To all the poets in the tri-state area
who are ripping off my words
my concepts
my phrasing
my general style…
I see what you’re doing.
I can tell.
I know.

Thank you so much.
You have no idea
how validating it is
to know that my work
is good enough to be stolen
by so many of you.
It really… words fail.

I wish there was something
some way I could show my appreciation
other than the Cease and Desist
Attack Squadrons accompanying
this notice.
I hope you understand
that your deaths mean to me
just as much
as your earlier thefts
and are only the beginning
of a worldwide purge.

Thank you again.
You have given me so much
with what you have taken.
