Poe With An M

You tell me not take Edgar Allan Poe for granted
as if I knew who this Poe guy is.

He wrote this, and this.
You recite from memory

sugar-coated stuff
only girls and gays would know.

When you tell me he married
his thirteen year old cousin,

then, and only then, do I realize
how far we’ve come.
