R-E-S-P-E-C-T (in high male falsetto)
by Hezekiah Allen Taylor

What kind of guy does a lot for me? Superman with a lobotomy."
--Julie Brown

fired with creativity
I was once fired for creativity

you are too much
it needs to be plainer, dryer

it was Friday the 13th;
that alone amused me

I wanted it in writing
to show my old English professors
my loving, but worried, mother
that indifferent roommate
I was blindly in love with once

in the meeting I wanted to list
all my favorite extremes:
Elvis Presley

but I kept them to myself
I'm afraid they'll leave me
if I share
