Poets

Betraying Alice Walker – Moriah LaChapell

Lately
I’m drawn
to male poets.

Not just
any rather
the good ones.

I think
it’s because
I don’t want
to just write
my feelings.

Jesus,
we all have
them.

Instead
I want to
learn
mechanism.

Like riding
in a fast car
with a blue-jeaned
man smiling
and I can’t
hear him
over the
engine.
