Here are a couple I did at a local reading on Monday.  They're not very polished pieces, but (as I noted before reading) they're somewhat of an interesting dichotomy because they were written in the same place about 10-15 minutes apart.  A local Poet Laureate was in the audience, and came up to me afterward to shake my hand and tell me he liked my stuff... so that was kind of exciting.

Again, they're not my strongest pieces, so any feedback and constructive criticism is welcome.

There is two of them!Collapse )

03:56 pm - Una poema
Dining In

No napkin laps and starch stains on my skirt
This meal of words and questions of dessert
Macaroni onto the plate and apathy fills the cup
Swallow down your sentiments, raise your glass up

Below torn tablecloths indecent things go unseen
His eyes wide and my hand is underneath his jeans
Silver spoons for thin soup and in we dip our bread
We sang grace but between us not a word was said

We drain our cups then chairs scrape against the floor
The food is gone but he sits there wanting more
He reaches for my wrist, but there’s cleanup to assist
Grease stains and everything, I know, we never kissed
Current Mood: awakeawake
Current Music: Swollen Summer- The Bravery

01:27 pm - Confuzed1's new journal.
The dormancy of this community makes me sad. The fact I currently have little worth contributing makes me sadder. So just to get people talking again I post a discussion question(s):

What does poetry mean to you, does it have a purpose? Can anybody be a poet?

It's been a while since I've written a poem worth posting

But drama and agony are always the best of inspiration

Please read and respond

I'll be sure to return the favor

Hey everyone. Just some random poem. I don't know if it's shit or if I should keep it around and mess with it, poke it, throw things at it once in a while to make sure it's alive. God, someone please help me with line breaks. "enjoy" :

07:52 pm - First Post
So, I've been reading publicly for about six months now, mostly at a monthly "Beat Night" at The Press Room in Portsmouth, NH.  Tomorrow is my next reading, so what better intro than the two poems I'll be reading?

Any feedback is appreciated, but just take note that the subject matter of these is a little bit different for me.  Usually my poems are about scary clowns or my coat having an affair or... well, not love.  But anyway:

Oh! There is two of them!Collapse )

Consider this my plea for praise

Or more like my cry for critisism

Any comment would be apprecaited

But I'm not expecting anything imparticular

07:07 am - hey everyone
I know this place hasn't exactly been hopping lately, and I know I haven't exactly been present, but I've been focusing on school and my photography a lot lately.

Hopefully this summer I will have more free time
