Don’t Be Literary, Darling (Sasha Moorsom)

Don’t be literary, darling, don’t be literary
If you’re James in the morning you’re Hemingway in bed
Don’t talk of yourself in the style of your own obituary –
For who cares what they say of you after you’re dead.

Don’t be always a thought ahead and a move behind
Like a general reconnoitring dangerous ground,
This is a game it’s better to enter blind
And the one who wins is the one who is caught and bound.

If you can’t be straight then just say nothing instead.
I’ll know what you mean much better than if it was said.
