spring has sprung and clearing out the apartment to make room for a cat whose sleep schedule is the exact opposite from mine has revealed the new/old projects that bring me joy.
this one is one that i will finish over the next few weeks. it came out of writer’s bootcamp and is a poetry mashup exercise. the titles are all folded over, so i’m just grabbing two at a time (yes, i took them all at the end) and seeing who wrote them afterwards. this morning’s surprise begat this re/mix (after three edits):
love obscures things hittin’ your heart
problems and pride live dimly in the dark
so close to an arrow of carnations
reactions speak louder than words so don’t be afraid to
listen if you’re missin’ sweaty imaginations
love the tight aroma
of another summer sound
that doesn’t bloom but carries
forms a closed hand on my dreams
i love you like this because
it seems that i don’t know
i don’t love you.
i’m developing some structure to my writing sundays, and today i discovered just how effective two hours of mining can be, and that’s just what i’m committing to doing.
