Poetic Thoughts (R.T. #15)

5 Jan

-A word to poets: One way to think of poems is that they’re emotions put into writing. And just like with your emotions, you think yours are awesome and special. But with other people, well, there’s much less tolerance. One poem, and you’re thinking, “Wow, that was pretty good, I feel like that too sometimes.” Five minutes in, though, and you’re thinking, “Oh my God, please just kill me now.” If you want to read all your poems to other people, join a poetry group. It’s just like group therapy. You only get to talk about yours if you agree to listen to everyone else’s.

-Friends are like snow. When you pee on it, it goes away. Beautiful, isn’t it?

Totally unrelated. I just found this searching for snow pictures.

This is cool too: Chinese snow festival

    Beautiful, indeed!

    Here’s a moving poem — sure to pull on your heartstrings — that someone sent me a couple months ago:

    There is a smile plastered on my face,
    though his words sting like mace.
    He sputters and shouts on the phone.
    As I think, “There’s no place like home.”
    I’m wondering if this guy is stable
    I guess he really cares about his cable
    Now his threats are making me nervous.
    Don’t you just love customer service?

    Nice, eh?

    Yet, here’s your homework assignment for today: Go watch “Dead Poets Society” again.
