One good one.

I want to become a poet
So I can write one good one
On paper better than the poem itself

Show the girls with the glazed look
And the slack jaw
And have sex for the rest of my life

I want to write one good poem
And when the critics and scholars
Crucify me
They’ll have to choke past a wadded piece
Of jagged literature first

To show my family
What a PHD in words and letters can do.
I want one good poem.
