Smite And Strike Down Meme Postings! Revolutionary IMprov Free Verse

August 22, 2014

Oh thou,
who postest memes
and quotes
on the walls,
from others unknown,
or dead,
or forgotten:
Hast thou not
statements from
thy own
mind?
And heart?
And soul?
Speakest thou
no more
for thy own self?

Canst thou not
summon from the depths
of thy mind
and heart
and soul,
ideas afresh?
Failest thou to create
musings which will
enlighten,
uplift
and strengthen
those who read?

Hast thy heart’s fire,
thy soul’s flame,
thy mind’s light,
been extinguished,
doused with watered-down
musings of others?

Must thou always
look to never-met souls
to speak thy mind?
Dost thou not
have thy own thoughts?
Ideas?
Passions?
Insights?

If thou art yet alive,
then thou dost!
And if thou dost,
Then so speak,
LOUD!
Thou! and thy Ideas!

Deny no more
thy own intellect!
Hide no longer
thy own muse!
Cease shading
thy own thoughts!

Let us see,
afresh,
thy own light,
and be blinded thereby,
that we all,
now,
and generations yet to be,
may copy
and paste
and wonder
at the new insights
which thou shalt
inspire us with
this day,
and forever more.

Multi-Sensory I-15 Topless Evening Drive: Revolutionary ImproVerse Free Verse Poem

August 21, 2014

Top down, I smell
skunk,
swamp gas,
fresh-mown hay,
manure,
meatpacking plants,
PIZZA!,
peach orchards with over-ripe fruit,
pine,
diesel,
desert dust,
rain showers,
the lake,
a steakhouse,
and barbecue.
It’s a multi-sensory I-15 drive.
