a poem for dzhokhar

you don’t know how it felt to be in the womb but it must have been at least a little warmer than this.
you don’t know how intimately they’re recording your every move on closed-circuit cameras until you see your face reflected back at you through through the pulp.
you don’t know how to stop picking at your fingers.
you don’t know how to make something, but the instructions are on the internet.
you don’t know how many vietnamese soft rolls to order.
you don’t know how to make sense of this massive parade.
you don’t know how to believe anyone anymore.
you don’t know how to tell the girl in the chair next to you that you’ve been peeking at her dissertation draft and there’s a grammatical typo in the actual file name.
you don’t know how to explain yourself.
you don’t want two percent but it’s all they have
you don’t know how to separate from this partnership to escape and finally breathe.
you don’t know how come people run their goddamn knees into the ground anyway.
you don’t know how to measure the value of the twenty dollar bill clutched in your hurting hand.
you don’t know how you walked into this trap so obliviously.
you don’t know how to adjust the rearview mirror.
you don’t know how to mourn your dead brother.
you don’t know how to drive this car.
you don’t know the way to new york.
you don’t know the way to new york.
you don’t know the way to new york.
you don’t know the way to new york

You don't know how to write good poetry, even if it's styled after Goethe or Kant.....

Wrote an English sonnet once. It was an assignment for a College Composition class, and took all of a half an hour.

Got a good laugh from the attractive female professor. It was worth the half an hour.

Dzhokhar is not a Space Cowboy
He's not a Gangster of Love
And I won't call him "Maurice"
Cause he doesn't speak of the Pompadus of Love.
