Amateur Literature



We’ve been studying more poetry in my AP Literature class recently, and since I have no desire to pay attention (being that I’m a senior), I’ve taken to writing out “pseudopoetry” with the intention of wasting time. I don’t really like poetry — well, I do like certain types of poetry that are particularly meaningful, clever, or meritorious — so this particular poem is a slight jab at myself and my reluctant attraction to poetry… I suppose that’s the best way to describe it.
