poetry because it needs to be
because my heart is already
dangling so far out of my chest–
does it really have to have
a spotlight and soundtrack to go with it?
for my own preservation of
expression– i find word weaving
with rhyme and rhythm allows
the story to spill forth as an
impression– keeps the edges from hardening.
have you heard the one about the
girl who was enveloped by
No– me neither– totally new to me.
or the same one about how when she
was enveloped– how she(i) was enveloping
at the same time– and it was
this really remarkable thing– because
I had never experienced it before and
didn’t actually know it was possible?
Yeah, I just heard that one for the first time too.
