Poem: My Next Novel Poem 


My next novel will be more
not less,
except in the places where
less is more
My next novel will be that
not this
My next novel will erase
all the anxious lines
tattooed ’cross the breadth
of this novel
My next novel will take
this novel out
to lavish dinners and wait
’til this novel is plump
and complacent
Then my next novel will push
this novel off a cliff,
but no one will care
about what happened to this novel
’cause they’ll be too busy reading
my next novel.
