I got some new books in the mail this week

I'm not sure how to feel when I like 1/3 of a poet's poems
more than anything else I've read in a long, long time,
but the other 2/3 of their poems make me feel an emotion
that is best described as "I want to turn the page as fast
and as violently as I can in the hopes that the poet will
feel the gust of wind this reaction creates and that
gust of wind."

Most of me is just happy to have the small amount of poems
that I really like.

I never actually turn the page as fast or as hard as I can.
