Collapse – March 26

Collapse

Poem

Sometimes
you push through,
pull out the
stops and
drain those reserves,
and other times
you have to succumb,
and collapse,
and float.
Collapse.

Commentary

The sister-poem to yesterday’s poem. I’m ok now though.

The Crack – March 20

The Crack

Poem

You take a breath
and feel it all,
bundled up inside
you;
So push the emotions into a ball,
and take another
breath, don’t stall;
Now breathe it out,
evaporate, and
get it out.
Renew.

Commentary

I was getting stressed about random projects and life and did some breathing exercises to chill out, and out came this poem, too. Free poem! Win!

Introspection – March 18

Introspection

Poem

Introspection, lo!
What madness, this?
When I think so
I dare not miss
the chance to
discount heart & soul;
I’d rather catch up
Facebook, yo.

Commentary

This was a response poem to my dear friend mocking me for having lots of electronics to keep me distracted from having to ponder the universe.
I don’t really care about Facebook, it just epitomises the vapid distraction of modern technology.

The Train Ticket – March 17

The Train Ticket

Poem

Oh woe is me,
long gone now, tree.
Replaced by plastic
(not fantastic)
Ah fuck, I’ll ride the
train for free.

Commentary

I tried to swipe my plastic train card thing to get on the train, and it said it was invalid. After much fiddling it finally seemed to work, so I didn’t ride the train for free (more likely, the damnable thing didn’t tag me off and charged me the maximum trip cost). Nonetheless, a poem came of it so not all was lost.
I rarely catch the train, but I was trying to get into the library to do some work.
