Almost Famous: A Poem by Shelby Hinte

Almost Famous

Now that I am a literary critic I wonder if it is a bad thing
like how some writers think critics are the enemy
like how in the movie Almost Famous
the teenaged journalist thinks he is becoming friends with the band until
one night the lead singer calls him
the enemy
and then
of course
by the end of the film
well
he really sees what they think
(that he is the enemy)

(I am not the enemy)
