Poetry Readings
by johnmac the bard

I read poetry
A lot now
 — here — and
other places

At the conclusion 
of each poem,
people smile and laugh
 — even clap

When I finish all
the poems I read,
they do it again

This makes me
feel pretty good
 — pretty good!

I’d feel really good
if they bought 
the goddamn books!
