Some Poetry

So this semester I’m in my college’s (Northeastern) creative writing class. We started with poetry which is… not exactly ideal but whatever. So we had to write one shorter poem and one longer one. I was not convinced that either poem was any good, but today in class we went over our short poems and I got a response very different from what I’d expected. We went around the class and each read the poem of the person next to us, when it came time for someone to read mine a very pretty girl across the table from me audibly whispered to her friend, “This is the best one,” or something like that (we had all read each others’ poems before class), and also at the end of class someone came up and told me mine had been the best. I was a little taken aback as I had thought it was average at best and I still have problems with it but I guess it might actually be fairly decent. The longer ones we haven’t gotten to yet so I don’t know whether it’s as good, I highly doubt it though, I don’t like it much but it’s something.

Acoustic Reflex

I’ve been listening to all the songs
I didn’t write about you
And wishing there were songs
That you didn’t write about me.



Death once came for me
Death sounded like a kick drum
And a choked cymbal
And death looked like an airbag.

Death rolled me
I held tight as the world turned
Upside down, then right side up
And then stopped.

Death burned
The smoke stung my eyes
And choked me
As my dog cried.

But death didn’t get me
Cautiously I explored the feeling
In my limbs and tested their movement
As shock faded the radio played.

My dog thrashed behind me
Her leash caught and tangled
As I released her she bolted
And together from death we ran.

Soooo… yeah. Not much else really. College is fun, most of the time. Might have a short story or something soon, hard to predict really.

    My husband and i got really happy when Louis managed to carry out his investigations through the entire precious recommendations he got in your site. It’s not at all simplistic to just be giving freely information and facts that many many others might have been trying to sell. So we consider we need the writer to be grateful to because of that. The type of illustrations you made, the simple site menu, the friendships your site make it easier to create – it’s all unbelievable, and it’s really leading our son and our family reason why this matter is satisfying, and that is wonderfully indispensable. Thank you for the whole lot!

Entirely was a real hard scenario in my opinion, but coming across this expert tactic you solved it made me to weep for fulfillment. Now i’m happier for the work and hope you know what a great job you happen to be putting in training people with the aid of your web site. Probably you have never met any of us.
