The Unexpected (Death 1)

Feb 16 2015

As a student of reports
I was not an expected member
of the poetry club
But I had poems to read
about video games, travel,
and the ways we live now
So they let me read

A doctoral poetry student
Complimented the allusions,
citing the unusual fare.
I told him my situation.
He said he didn’t write much
These days, after being married
no tragedy to exorcise
no conflict to memorialize

I’m in his shoes now,
no tragedy, no conflict
but I was not an expected member
of the poetry club,
and I still have poems to read
