Read the featured writer of the week, JULEIGH HOWARD HOBSON, in the featured room, GARAGE, below and then visit the ARCHIVE for more Pink Plastic Poets and their words:
What I’m Going to Do, Sarah Connor / Juleigh Howard Hobson
I’m going to pretend you’re my mother, I
Know you don’t really exist, that you are
Just an actor, that the role is just your
Job. But I’m going to pretend. It’s why
I won’t kill myself with crashing the car
Headlong into the freeway divider
By grabbing the steering wheel when she takes
Me to school. I’ll pretend she’s my foster
Mom, who brings me places, makes me do chores.
I’ll pretend I have to stay with her, make
The best of it while you are away for
Hollywood, that you love me, that I’m yours,
That when you’re back everything will be fixed
Perfect. Meanwhile, I have you on Netflix.
