Four Poems on Verse

TO MY VERSE

You have uttered some nonsense,
to be fair,
a lot of nonsense.

TO MY VERSE II

When I go, don’t remind those I loved anything about me,
when I go, don’t remind those who loved me,
just change the subject.

you’re misled and overdo it
as a result you expose me as well.

who was writing for us all these years?
