A poem that resonates in Public Service Announcement

from Greatness

I don’t try to seem very intelligent anymore.
I am beyond such effects.
Like a false limb full of stolen pearls.
Do you want me to write a poem?
Then hold my flask.

WEIRD THING: I realized this almost certainly came from the "Pome" mailing list, because he always spells her name Chelsea (it's actually Chelsey).

He quoted one of her poems a few months ago and it resonated so much that I immediately bought her book! (The whole thing doesn't really stick with me the way I expected, but it's still quite good.)

Strange, maybe I should email him back and tell him to spell her name right. in poem form. lol.
