Random Thoughts

March 21, 2012

In the interest of "opening up" and posting something different I've decided to share some poetry I wrote during my freshman year of high school (1999!).  The one that follows is one of my favorites. We were supposed to be doing some assignment in English utilizing magnetic words. Since I was slacking off being creative I put random words (each word was a separate magnet) together to form phrases and thoughts. When class was ending I could have easily just removed my words from the wall, never to remembered or seen again. Instead I furiously scribbled them down. I was proud of my free flowing words. They have no coherent flow, no meaning. Just words thrown together. Some phrases stick out, others are nonsensical. 

paint psychedelic rhythm and harmony
suffer passion
demand original art
i must feel pain
draw free
mad empty blue mean
old & young
# ? & @
let death feel dark
never ask to scream 
imagine masterpiece
you will create mr. drug
what is it
see no color
break glass icons
smear red fiery waste
sense hard grace
capture grown-ups
i am an ism
dazzle full
throw concrete
say canvas flower
yell something
spiritless love

    I love when I come across something I had forgotten about and fall back in love with it. Words are a great snapshot of a moment.
