I Just Watched XXX and it was Awesome
he jumped barns
he jumped avalanches
he jumped jumps
I kept throwing up and crying at the same time because it was so awesome
I feel empty now
I feel like dying
I can't ride dirtbikes like him
I can't do that cool sideways thing over a gully
he is an asshole
I am an asshole
there is no reason here

This poem is important to me. Here's why:
- It is written clearly and plainly
- It allows for the simultaneous existence of beauty and vulgarity towards media
- It is reverential and critical in respectful ways
This past Friday I went to see XXX: The Return of Xander Cage. When the movie ended, people stood up and clapped.
Those are the people who I write poems for.
Thank you, Derek Keisgen.
