By Marc Carver

You have to be a bad man
to be a poet
you have to be disturbed
you don’t even have to know why
but know that is why you can
and if you ever find out
it doesn’t really help you
or make you a better poet
if anything it may make you worse
but now you know
why you started
and if you want
you can stop
I am not a great man
I am weak
I am not too clever
I am all sorts of bad
I am not even a good writer
Even when people tell me I am
I like to tell the truth
but people really don’t want that
but still I give it to them
I drink
I drink
I push people away before they hurt me
I hurt them.
Now people don’t want to know me at all
and to be honest
I don’t blame them
