I heard the words

he is so pompous


hush here he comes

& I’d sit with them for a while

pulling in the ideas

drawing down what they wanted done

suggesting this

maybe that’s

to go away write up what they needed

& we’d meet again

they’d pull faces

where I’d missed a point

huff where I’d been too crude

to go away start over

until it was done

& I guess they hated

they couldn’t do what I did

turn their half assed ideas into flesh

something that could be reproduced

in the minds of others

make it straight make it clean

make it mean what we mean

they’d chorus happy young faces

& you & I know

to know pompous y’have to be pompous

pretentious is as pretentious does

the hardest thing to do is love

& smile when the piranhas bite
