the vanguard in me wants to say
Yes of course it does!
if you mean it to
but the drill sergeant says
of course not!
research is research!
stop trying to get out of your writing duties!
me, i just i think none of this is poetry
none of it at all
i’m not much of a poet
maybe, though, it’s like the wolf thing
if i feed the drill sergeant
he might not get eaten by wolves.
if i feed the van guard
he won’t fit into his fancy pants.
