Avoiding Cliches

by lukaki26

He approached me after the reading,
a leather satchel over one shoulder
and a sizable chip on the other.

He said "I really liked your work,
but don't you think that it would
be a better idea to avoid cliches?"

With a sinuous smile, he mingled.
Taking his advice, I snubbed him
for the remainder of the evening.

Cool poem, Lucas.

Even before the sinuous satchel proposes his "better idea," he foreshadows his conventional ignorance to come with his "but don't you think ..."

This poem gives me to think that next time someone aims a "but don't you think ..." at me, I might just walk away before hearing the rest of the pontification.
