Almost There

I have climbed the mountain
to the very top
and now I am looking over it
and goddamn it
there’s another mountain
and it’s taller than the first mountain
and has more steep bits
plus a lot of goats
gamboling on its precipices
mocking me

  1. I have written a bad poem
    full of terrible badness
    and now as I read it
    I find within
    another poem
    worse than the first poem
    with more awful metaphors
    plus many tired cliches
    lurking within its lines
    mocking me
