I'LL BE KNOCKING OUT BEAUTIFUL POETRY THIS WHOLE GODDAMN FLIGHT
by Sean Adams
Pop quiz: “Just breaking lines, blowing minds.” Is this A, a saying that I live by; B, what’s printed on the flagship coffee mug of my line of “Inspirational Cups for Inspired Poets” (available on Etsy); or C, what I’ll be doing until the tray tables go up and the electronics power down?
The answer is E, all of the above.
What was option D? You’ll never know. That’s a lesson about writing poetry: sometimes it’s best to leave things unsaid...
The rest of the monologue is this good and better. Have you ever read any of McSweeney's Short Imagined Monologues? The few I've read have been pretty clever. It's too bad the "goddamn" makes this NSFFB...my mom would be horrified to know that I even typed the word.
