You will never be a famous poet

No you will never
be as brilliant
as Ginsburg
sat for one moment.

Forgive yourself,
it was never meant
to be,
you and poetry.

These days you
curse, are sublime
to the lesser kind,
the fool,
the knave,
the private.

Expect everything,
nothing is enough,
but you will be
caught off guard
by death and
misfortune,
whomever you may be.
