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.
