The Poet Community

Forgery | A Poem by Russ Cope

I would rather have a fake
life than the real faces
I see, preferring company
from literary characters

An evening with Holden,
discussing the desultory
state of the world, afternoon
with Kilgore Trout, talking

of humor and horrors,
a nightcap at Gatsby’s,
hoping for a life green.
