i wanna be a badass

by mickharris

i want to be one of those cool writers, you know,

the ones with big hair and red lips and boobs all over the fuckin place

bursting at the seams with delicious and steamy

poetry

 

or maybe i want to be tall and slender and write with thin fingers and bird wrists

about my anxiety

and my process

pushing my rimmed glasses up my nose

and curling shoulders

over my pages at readings

 

instead i’m this weird beast who has endless conversations

with no one

on the internet
