To hang on some wall somewhere

That is dull and crazy

So that some authority figure can

Say that i am doing a good job?

Fuck that

That kinda of praise don’t me much

But someone writing me on Instagram

And telling me I wrote a decent line or two

Tells me so much

You can have that fucking thing

I don’t need it or want it

Why would i want a trophy or award?

I won’t get a fucking award,  I’m too crazy

They don’t give them to mad or the oddballs

But to the older professors,

All distinguished and normal and all that bullshit

You know Rimbaud or Whitman

Never got an award for their shit

And you know what that means
