You Don’t Believe Me

by Mark Chmiel

You don’t believe me
And why should you anyway
I’m twice your age—
Don’t trust anyone over 55

You don’t believe me
When I tell you
What you penned outta your core
Ended smack in my core

I believe you totally
About the Chihuahua people
How much you love them
How they resurrect you

You don’t believe me
That a blog’s worth starting
For a few people—
Who gives a fuck about the world wide web masses?

You don’t believe me
Since I come after 13 people
Who say the exact opposite
Of what I intimate to you

All I ask is that you believe me
For a mere two minutes
Then resume your radiant skepticism
Alyosha, I’ll always be your Markel
