I have recently been on a roll trying to promote my first book of poems. And I am realizing something; it's a recent trend, I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but it's called poets like to complain. We poets have several topics of lamentation. I have listed them off for future reference:
1.) We like to complain that we don't make any money.
2.) We love to complain that nobody reads us.
3.) We really, really like to complain that nobody reads us and that we don't make any money.
