...Dramatic scenes all wanting a close up... The poter just shakes his head, as William Burkholder reveals.


Sipping Coffee

So many renditions
Of my dog up and died,

From Manhattan Avenue
To Kentucky fried,

She's gone,
He's gone,

If only we had tried...
Harder.

Harder?
Why should it be so?

Wrapped so tight,
In plight,

Of Drama King and Queen,
Operatic Bullshit!

Soap opera wanna's
Dramatic scenes,
All wanting their close up.

Seen for their true misery,

Oh that it's so chic,
So Betty Ford,

Sipping coffee
I think...

And just shake,
This lowly poet's head.
