I’m not as attractive as I think I am
and you aren’t as ugly as you might think you are

by Ameen Wahba

1000 underground rappers mocking each other
poetry under the label of unemotional colloquy
teething at a shared struggle but to be one to cope the least
and express this proud difficulty

invaluable
is one of my least favorite words
‘invaluable’ is useless
valuable is invaluable
they are one in the same
maybe someone got tired of saying
‘extremely valuable’
i get that
