I Don’t Pull My Words Up From the Back, A Poem by Chris Russell

You should doubt me,

since I rarely catch myself

wanting to be the guy

you’ll never been disappointed by.

I don’t pull my words up

from the back to check

if they’re full of it

the way that I should,

even when I know I stink.

Of course, I can’t always be

what you want.

But you still should doubt me.

I mean, someone has to.
