Paying The Famous Poet After the Reading

“Your poetry—
I liked it…I guess,”

I shrug again
as we stand next door
to each other’s writing.

The famous one
got paid again for his
flushed, important
thoughts.

The things I read
are poker chips,
I guess. He’s only
“poetry famous,”
they say, like that
will even out
the game.
