“The List Poem”
Avenue A, Tompkins Square Park, The Bowery, Ludlow Street These are places in New York Where I hung out over winter break. I hope some guy in poetry class Reading this, Thinks I’m cool, And asks me out for coffee.
Hefeweizen, Beaujolais, grappa, kir I am underage yet I can still list drinks! How sophisticated is that? Particularly for someone who hangs out on Ludlow street. Foreign words do sound nifty When italicized in a poem, And these are the only foreign words I can think of Naturally, because I am drunk.
