i want to be followed by david mamet – a poem

i want to be followed by david mamet
or godot
kurt vonnegut and lou reed
i want to shine in the sun and in the rain
words will shoot from my fingertips
and poems like storms from my lips
i want to arrive at becoming
a writer
a charleton
a digital firebrand

of all these things i want
the most sacred
is love
i want to be loved
for being smart
funny
poetic

for being a dad

for having great words
powerful words
the best words

here character by character
i am building an empire
singing some some you may never hear
or read

and mamet goes on
no header image on his twitter account
his plays and words and images and pultizer prizes
stacking up

and i
do
not
stack
up

yet
