UNCOUTH

Years ago
to coax me
into a Bergman film
a friend declared
You might just like it.
They wear pretty clothes.
Needless to say
I took offense.
Bergman may not lie
beyond my depth
because I dress well.
And while I’m at it
let me say
that I’m also not fond
of Faulkner
Stravinsky
de Kooning
or kale.
