i am no longer
trying to write
the great American novel
it’s too time consuming
& cuts into my online
social networking time

so i have outsourced
all of my journals, notebooks
& personal scribblings
to a remote village
in northern India
where they are busy
weaving it all into
some semblance
of American literature

i am confident
they have the resources
to mold me into a
literary superstar

& the added bonus is
i still have the time
to play X-box
& update my
facebook & twitter status
every 27 minutes
while appearing to be
a small press prodigy
