*Inspired by a particularly bad comment section on the internet that was condemning someone else’s stupidity.
I don’t always speak in internet memes, but when I do
It’s for that awkward moment when
I notice that one does not simply express himself naturally.
Ain’t nobody got time fo’ thought?
It’s gotten Very Wow! One Gif! So Lazy!
Am I Forever Alone in this?
You must have noticed these meme abusers…
There’s Over 9000!!!!
This is a poem I wrote back in high school for a Writer’s Craft course. It’s loosely inspired by Christopher Nolan’s “Memento”. The trick is to read it as a clock from noon to midnight. The meaning of the first verse changes the second time around.
Bird boarding subway
You’ve wings that we don’t to spread
Why ride beside us?
Red, White and Blue
Pen bled blue for you
Now red scars on white drown blue
Scribbled on the page
The well has run dry
This empty cup of coffee
It begs to be filled
Guest of the Sky
When will the sun rise?
Visits of its volition
Man can’t force the hour
