MAYBE I DON'T SAY by Lori Collins

Maybe I don’t say
with enough conviction
for you to take me
seriously as a poet

Fuck sounds on my lips
Like we’re not so well acquainted
Like I don’t know what I’m talking about

Maybe you don’t think
that I know enough about anger
to have angst in my art

And maybe, just maybe
You don’t know
What the fuck
you’re talking about


Lori Collins is a native Californian, who has lived in Europe for five years and now resides in the Washington D.C. metro area where she has performed her poetry at various open mic evenings.
