i'm not a poet

i don't know why i'm on this website

everyone here writes beautifully

while my writing sounds like

a dictionary in a blender

churning chaos

held together by 26 letters 



i got a B in english class

not good enough

i could give an excuse and claim

that english isn't my first language

but it is


i'm just trying

give me a chance

i might become a famous writer some day

or i might find a way to eliminate the entire mosquito population

the odds are about the same
