Out of the Loop

Those guys
who read Nausea

thinking they’re cool

without a hint of irony.

Didn’t know Carlson McCullers
was a girl

till five years ago.

The loop is so strenuous.

All of those wanting to get in…

Not knowing that getting out
is layered with

a pinch of
original thought.

I’m a lone confessor
In a gallowed world.
