Voyeur-Liar-Poetess

the doorknob was loose
the doorknob to my room
through that round hole in the door
my secrets ran into the world
into the lives of complete strangers
(beautiful strangers, but STILL, UNknown)

the strangers were whores
the strangers were sick
I watched them every night through
that round hole in the door
to find them
doing absolutely nothing
reading, making Love and drinking tea
at midnight
(I wrote poems about their actions,
about a thousand pages; did’nt sell
one copy)

the poems were nothing spectacular
the poems did’nt really exist
though being a voyeur, I fabricated
a lie of being a worthless poetess
who wrote a bunch of poems that
no one ever read
(maybe at the library, where all of the
books are dead)
