Bull honky Bill
 
Write me something I've never read before

I learned not to expect too much
I leaned how to speak English
listening to my parents
vent their hopeless frustrations (It affected my thinking)
My dad was known as Bullhonky Bill
I will never be a successful poet

I have no money to pay publishers
but I'd rather be an unknown poet?
than be a coddled boring poet
writing what people have already read
and heard
a thousand times before
