every day living cliches writing essays at jazz cafes wearing berets drinking lattes so much to say but being cliche is not okay it's better than that it's great!
There was a while where I avoided rhyming. Well, I avoided a lot of stuff, actually. But not anymore. Lately, I’ve been wearing berets a lot. I’ve always thought they were cute, but used to worry that it was too stereotypical, being a poet who wears berets. And what about jazz? Won’t people call me boring, or worse, pretentious, for enjoying what is often referred to as ‘elevator music’?
I don’t care anymore and I’ve never been happier!
The other day at work I wore a beret and a coworker, someone I’d never talked to before, said “every time I see you in that little hat I’m just ready to hear you spout some poetry or something. It’s so cute, I love it!” and wouldn’t ya know it, I was writing some poetry when she said that. 💌
