letting go is easy

letting go is easy
you wrap your arms and legs
around the object of your desires
you cling on as if for dear life
you sink your teeth into it
and through the nose
you say you've let go

you know how it is

i will lie to you

i will say
we are done

i will tell you
life has never been better

i will say
i don't think about you
at all

i will tell you
i am so over you

i will say
i have moved on

how to write brilliant poetry

start with a rant

the rant

situate it
in post-
postmodern theory, perhaps

reference it

call it poetry

How Leicester Square became part of the Independent Socialist Republic of Leicester

riding on elephants
it was raining
when we got to Leicester Square

our spirits were high
so we wore sunglasses

dressed in an orange jumpsuit
the Chief of Leicester Square
promised the natives free wifi
as they gathered
and we annexed the Square
on behalf of
the Independent Socialist Republic of Leicester
