Opinions Are Assholes.

Updated: Dec 20, 2021

“Are you going to put me in your stories??”

“Maybe, if you give me good material to work with.”


“After reading you, I’ve realized that you aren’t ready to settle down.”

“Yeah, that’s true.”

“Do you know how hard it is to read about other women?? It’s fucking devasting.”

“I’m sorry babe. You deserve better.”


“You seem like a Bukowski wannabe fuck boi.”

“Okay, good-bye.”


“Your writing is decent but you make yourself an asshole in your stories and you aren't really that blunt or rude.”

“Sure.”


“You’re a lot better than you think. You shouldn’t call your writing shitty.”

“Yeah, maybe.”


“Why’d you start writing poetry?”

“Because of a woman.”

“She must’ve really fucked you up huh?”

“Yeah.”

“Tell me what happened.”

“I don’t really like talking about it.”

“You just like writing about it though?”

“Writing about it is easier.”


"What's this chick's power over you?"

"It's hard to explain."

“You should get over her. She clearly isn’t healthy for you. I’ll send you some videos on how to get over someone.”

“I like using her as a muse.”

“Well when I went through a heartbreak, this is what I did.”

“I don’t think it’s fair to compare heartbreak.”

“I’m just trying to help you. You can have empathy for someone and know what they’re going through.”

“No you can’t.”

“Yes you can. Empathy is powerful.”

“I don’t think you can imagine what it’s like to be someone else and then understand them in any sort of real way.”

“You’re wrong and you should practice more empathy.”

“Okay.”


“I think you’re a genius. With a little more work, you could be one of the greats.”

“That’d be cool.”


“This is Chester. He is a writer.”

“Are you really??”

“No, not really. I’m just a fighter who writes.”

"Oh..."


“Why do you use so much language, drugs and sex in your stories? I feel like they would be better without them.”

“Okay.”


“You haven’t traveled anywhere??”

“Hardly.”

“You don’t really know the world if you’ve never traveled!”

“That’s probably true.”

“You need to go experience new cultures and meet new people.”

“Probably.”


“I love how in touch with your feelings you are. I love how raw and real you are. It’s sexy.”

“Thanks doll.”


“You never graduated college and it shows in your writing.”

“Thanks.”

“That wasn’t a compliment.”


“Your stuff is just too heavy for me to read.”

“Okay.”

“I like lighter stuff. Positive stuff. Funny stuff. You’re funny sometimes but you’re usually too dark.”

“Understandable.”


“I don’t have time to read your writing.”

“You’re my best friend dude, the least you can do is grab your phone out and read something while you take a shit. You can probably read 3 or 4 poems in the time it takes to take a shit.”

“I hardly have time to take a shit bro. I’m just crazy busy.”

“Whatever man."


“You need to work on your grammar.”

“Yeah, I know.”


“Why don’t you write a book??”

“I’m working on it.”


“Don’t forget about us when you’re famous Chester.”

“Fame sounds like hell in today's world.”

“Well I want you to be famous and successful.”

“They will cancel me before I ever make it mainstream.”

“Oh yeah…. They probably would.”

I keep looking to the opening door, hoping to see you walk in. It’d be a miracle if you did. Its an impulse- an instinct. Something rooted in my subconscious. A parasite that lives rent free in there.

A civil war in Canada? I thought they were the kind ones, with good healthcare? A civil war in America? Maybe a devorce would be better… Something has to change, A war in Ukraine?? Against Russia?? Oy
