Poem

For some reason,
Hemingway, Henry
Miller and
Flannery O'Connor
popped in for a visit.

I had just returned
from work and my legs
were too tired
to really socialize.

So we watched the new
Herbie movie together.
They were all surprised
by the direction
moving pictures have taken,
and also the direction
automobiles have taken.

Anyway, they gave me
this magic potion.
They said I
can use it to publish books.

Whatever books I write
will be published.

Then they said they
give this potion to everyone,
but most people don't
write books.

Some people write movies.
For that potion,
Henry said,
I'd have to see
the late filmmaker
Stanley Kubrick.
