Well, since I don't see much going on over here in the "Creativity Corner", I think I'm gonna' make myself nice and cozy. I took a vow of silence today (as long as the sun is up) and wrote a poem. It's very postmodern in structure, but I'm not taking the time to fix all the html stuff. All feedback is appreciated.

Fear

I

I sit alone on carpet

a
b
o
v
e

me

(hangs) hangs

(an idea) a sword

suspended on a single string.

I fear

it may fall

and skewer me whole.


I stand in a crowd

of thousands

how many? how many?

have

a knife (an idea) a gun

how many?

will use them;

AM

I

SAFE

?


II


Why

should a well-meaning individual

in a nation of freedom

ask

this Why?

question?

Why?

Should we fear?


NO.

WE are the people

who can say SAY

NO.

WE have listened

to what they SAY and our answer

is the same: NO.


wiretaps loopholes

buyouts secrets alliances

debt weapon-building

scandal LIES war


WE

SHOULD

SCREAM

NO.


III


But this isn’t enough

Shout

NO

at

this

tornado

all

you

want

it

still

won’t

stop

until

you

act.

Turn the winds of change

Undo what they’ve done


IV


PAY
ATTENTION
to the Mother Culture
whispering in your ear.


Now


ignore her.


Observe

but don’t

Assimilate.

Question

without

Preconceptions.

React

to what

Reality

really is:

=

Subjective.


We make it our own

to enjoy,

not fear.
