Poetry #282
(published June 15, 2006)
by Jonathan Hayes
On a sidewalk in NYC,
my father told me that I was
not destined to fame or fortune.

In the academy, a professor
said that if you are not anthologized
you will go extinct.

Darwinism of letters does not concern me.

A plausible reason for self-destruction, does.
