An old pretentious poem found a home

“Drunk Poet at the Wrong House” is a poem that started out as a serious poem some years ago. It wasn’t just serious, it was pretty bad and, worse,  pretentious. Over the years it got retooled and ended up as a humorous poem that makes fun of bad, pretentious poems like I used to write. I was pretty sure no one would ever get it but me, but I’m happy to find I’m wrong. It’ll appear in This Zine Will Change Your Life sometime this winter.
