Being A Poet’s Favorite Fan

I think I’ll just leave you
A little more alone about it from now on and
Not attempt to slip any more poems under your door
Or in your face or email folder or coat pocket.
You can still find them when you’re in the mood.

It’s factual enough my work’s depressing, even to myself.
Now even though I express it to relieve it,
I still shouldn’t belabor or weary any worthy reader
Who’s apt to feel the foreignness and the horror of it
And would prefer to evade the tiresome honor of it.
I can’t blame you.
