Response to Ted Kooser's "Selecting a Reader"

Sorry bud
but what you got
is a dude
older than he thought
he'd ever live to be
who doesn't wear
a raincoat because
in Florida's tropical
downpour raincoat
paper bag about
the same thing,
and if he did
would never consider
cleaning it because hell
didn't the rainwater
just do that who
walks into a bookstore
sees your name on
the cover and plunks
down an obscene amount
of cash to be able
to open the book
with his morning coffee.
Sorry man,
better luck next time.
