I'm Too Boring to Make Good Art

This is one of the first poems I wrote when I started performing at poetry slams. I meant it to be a lament, of sorts. Woe is me, I am too wealthy, healthy and happy to write good poetry. Since then, others have interpreted it as a comment on other performers and the generic devices they use. That is not how it was meant, but it is always rewarding when people find things in my poetry I didn't know were there.
