Christian Langworthy Poems
Why I Look At Girls
I look at girls as an act of escapism while reading books at Barnes & Noble on the death of poetry. I look at girls because I think Darryl Hannah was perfect
(Inspired by 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte') The movie is not worth the ten dollars That I had paid, so while it is playing,
