Small Talk
By Michael Bollinger

Everywhere I go there are more
and more people
who all want to make
small
talk.
What's the point?
I don't care
and
neither do
you.
Fake smiles, fake interest.
What's the point?
All I want to do is
keep to myself, but
I can't
because that would be
rude,
selfish,
anti-social.
Someday I hope to feel
drunk while
sober and tell you to
fuck off.


I think Hank would be proud of this because he didn't really like being around many people either.
