Chick Lit

by Mainon A Schwartz

pour me another glass of champagne

while i wipe the tears of laughter from my eyes.

i see what you've been trying to show me all along:

your genius lies in your unabashed absurdity (such absurdity!).

i should just sit back and accept that you

are the literary equivalent of a small-town stripper,

not very talented but still so entertaining.

you keep writhing on my lap,

and i keep turning the page.


Author's Note: Inspired by a very insipid poem written by a character in one of the Gossip Girls novels (yes, I hate that I have to confess to reading it in order to attribute my inspiration).

Loved this confessional - those last two lines totally engaged. Thanks for this.
