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).
