Nostalgia Act

NOSTALGIA ACT

Aren’t you that
Poet who was famous
Once?

That poet
Who lived
Downtown
That wore
That old leather
Jacket & who
Was kinda like
A punk rock vampire
Lord Byron meets
Edgar Allan Poe
Guy?

I really liked
That poem you
Wrote the young millennial
Girl says
It was totally awesome
My mom has the book

Thank you

Which one?

I inquire

You know
That one about
Dying without her
Love & sadness
Loss & self
Destruction

That one

Y’know

“Come As You Are”

I smile
Take a sip of my
Coffee, excuse myself
From the room
