The Nose

I’m sorry; you’re not doing it right.
You’re just not street enough
not dark enough
nor urban
or dangerous or hip enough.

You’re just not what we’re looking for.
You’re not what anyone’s looking for.
You’re not the sort of thing
that makes any sense
that defies any realistic expectation
of what should exist
and we cannot in good conscience
invest any further in your continuance.

It’s simple enough:
you don’t fit.
You’re beyond compare
in that there’s nothing to compare you to.
You’re unique
in that no one else
does anything near what you attempt.
Your actions are unprecedented
because no one else considered ever trying
anything akin to them.
You know about Recommended If You Like something?
We can’t do that with you;
you’re unlike everything else.

You’re uncategorically uncategorizeable
and there’s no hole
for a peg of your sort.
Come back
if you’re ever willing to change.
