Gonna Write A Letter - Poem by Robert Brendan

to the business oilfield man
who I made sure
by paying
this other
far more efficient and capable one
a sum of money
to get the project
the ever-loving
in time
after all
did not he himself
stress the great importance
of moving forward to
of this particular
phase of the
project cycle
so as to remain in accordance
with the initial timeline
and pay structure?
you commit to a lot
quite a lot
when you say things like that
even though
it is phony clap gob
to make you sound
its also spelling put each
in the project
and when someone doesn’t
come through on that

you wonder if they got a course
in talking shit instead
of doing shit
