As a kid
I used to play in the dryer.
pretending to be the boulder
chasing Indiana Jones,
I would be a critically acclaimed poet.
After a confusing chain of emails
between the state government and myself
I learned that I was officially nominated
to become the Poet Laureate of California.
At first I thought I was being trolled
but have since learned that they were real government people
trying to fill an actual government position.
So I am officially launching my campaign
for the position of Poet Laureate
even though the job is not decided by any vote.
There’s no democracy.
The governor just picks a guy. (or girl)
“Then Eric, why launch a campaign?”
Because the governor has an email address.
You can contact him here:
& you can tell him whatever you want.
