Mediocre Goodbye Poem

She ran out
the door
swinging

not the door
mind you
the girl

see, she was
mad
as a hatter
particularly at me
as i had stung her
with the truth

crazy people hate that
shit

I told her, see
that she hated herself
so much
that she even hated
people like me
who loved her

but I
soon fixed that

She told me
all the ways I sucked
and reminded me
that my writing
was “very mediocre”

I pointed out that
mediocre means
ordinary, moderate
neither good nor bad
so
“very” made no sense
and
she’s a brilliant poet

I guess that made
things worse
