Claim to fame

if talking to myself
in public
and yelling back at my voices
is some kind of
claim to fame,
then yea buddy!
give me a star
on the hollywood boulevard!


this poem is inspired by the song “no more buffalo” by james mcmurtry, there is a line where he says something to the effect, ‘don’t go trying to make a name for yourself, you’ll probably do about the same, tilting at windmills with that old fender guitar’
