Philip Vermaas

You shouldn’t be here.
You’re disrupting the class
with your rejections
of tested recipes for success.
This course is not for you.
Take back your money.
You shouldn’t have come.”

“How do I know
where I’m supposed to be
until I get there?
And thanks,
I can buy a sufficiency
of bottled inspiration
with this
extravagant sum.”

  1. You cannot teach or learn poetry only about poetry or poets. We are fortunate Phillip Vermaas
    has his own class and is not bottled up with other attitudes or platitudes but drinks from his
    own glass darkly.
