it's like they not have poet soul,
 1
just sexy boy body -- young kid,
 2
he want poetry education --
 3
so, why he go all,
 4
'what you want, homo' to me?
 5
stupid american. suspicious.
 6
 
 
he only got one thng to sell;
 7
ok, so then you talk him to serious
 8
reader. show how to makes words dance --
 9
is not so easy for surfer boy! he got to work.
 10
 
 
then, is next, when they see they not so good poet,
 11
try to get respect by hustle;
 12
try to hook up -- 'you like my poem,
 13
it's behind my zipper.' -- skum
 14
kid, rich or poor, nothing
 15
of self-real, only just meat. children of meat.
 16
 
 
finally, see they can't,
 17
can't fuck their way to poet --
 18
nobody worth something as writer wants them for fuck.
 19
nobody likes them for their brilliant conversation --
 20
all which makes skater dude
 21
so sad -- see skate dude cry.
 22
 
 
fuck, you can't say how fuck
 23
is what happens when can't write. that and drug.
 24
if they got balls inside, got what it take;
 25
to put like scientist: if they have anything
 26
in their atomic self besides bull-s.,
 27
they write the simple poem,
 28
 
 
then, you love them for genius, tell them,
 29
and they go away -- you know you got it when it makes you feel good... oh, yes.
 30
and, evaporate -- who the hell knows...
 31
so, they leave you alone to finally learn you yourself to be poet.
 32
 
 
you are more because of it;
 33
for them, it won't count as anything
 34
except day-dream. even so, now they are Young Poet, instead of lover-boy.
 35
but they still can't read you, can't read like old man.
 36
can't help you.
 37
students are worthless, wonderful, what the hell.
