stereotypes (iii)


two sides of a coin

who’s a poet?

stereotypes:
1. drinks a lot of coffee
2. has serial lovers, lots of sex
3. doesn’t give a damn what anybody thinks
4. has no money
5. loves weird animals like cats, owls, dinosaurs, lucifer

reality:
1. true only in movies
2. most of the poets I know are horny nuns, monks
3. OBSESSED with what other people think [and this they ink about]
4. true [in Nigeria], always and forever
5. oh, well… ain’t they cute animals?
