I’m shocked whenever anyone reads my poems

I'm shocked whenever anyone reads my poems

My poetry feels to me utterly disposable

It's best not to overthink these things

It was a throwaway piece written in under a minute

The map is not the territory

Science has more fingers than religion

But all of them are just fingers pointing at the moon

Rather than the moon itself

That's all I wanted to say really

I swear I was going somewhere with this

I swear I was…

Poetry is hard.

*looks innocent and drinks tea*
