I remember sitting in Anna O’Brians

pretending I was a poet

spinning lyrical ideas

over longboards and djarums.


or attending lectures pretending

i was a mathematician, or

showing up to work pretending

i knew shit about teaching.


when all I was doing was

thinking of a greasy pepperoni

pizza deep fried in bacon grease

and smiling about something Perri said:

“we all start as assholes in the womb.”


Some. Never. Change.
