Practical (a poem by Chris Kirkpatrick)

Conventionally speaking
(In an organizational
Sense)

Some may call me boring
(By sheer
Coincidence),

But oh, don’t let that
Fool you
(Though you’re not wrong
To try)

Because half I say—
Just disregard
(The other half’s
A lie).


Chris Kirkpatrick is the author of three books of poetry, Learning to See from the Blind and Mixed Metaphors and his latest book I Don't Know What To Tell You.
