The Poet - a poem

The Poet (inspired by Dylan Thomas's reading of "Poem in October". Sorry Dylan.)

the poet who loves his own voice's song
waxes on and on about nothing.
charming women of a certain sort
their perfume stiff and cloying
as their flowered dresses
and unfriendly looks.
all poisoning my taste for poetry books.
