Facebook told me
that I could
for only ninety dollars
learn from Billy
Collins how to write
a poem.

Nobody can write
like Billy
no matter how much
cash you offer
the poetic muses
or even Billy

For ninety dollars
I can sit
in The Pour House
coffee shop pretending
to be a poet
for a month

That way Billy
won’t have to worry
about the competition
