They Bought It



I am ambitious in a lazy way.
No big deal.
In college talking with Anne.
I’m going no where with my drawings.
B+ grade.
I can’t get an art grant.
America is cheap.
Go to the second team, disability.
My mom gave me my own room
Finally depression got me a check.
Too much caffeine gave me a stroke.
400 poems published.
No longer can work.
Stroke is a shut down.
Though it all worked out.
Ready to be reincarnated.
