Why Can’t You Be Quiet: Revolutionary (Napkin) Free Verse Poem

May 7, 2015

I don’t understand
why those who want me to
wear their words
will stand
and talk loud
over my thoughts
that I bled onto
my paper.

Don’t i matter?
Maybe I’m old.
Maybe I was born
In a time
When my daddy
And mamma taught we kids,
Once young, too,
Like you,
To be polite,
To show respect
To others,
To listen
When it’s your turn to hear.

Just as I
Turned my gaze
To you
And listened to your lips
As they caress
The open mic.

I will listen
And did listen
To you
When it was your turn,
To speak your truths.

And now that
Its my voice
That should be heard,
You can hear.
Or u may leave
And converse outside.

Or,
If you’re here,
So others may hear,
U may kindly,
Politely,
Quietly
Shut the f*** up.

How Real People Talk: Revolutionary IMprov Haiku

November 28, 2012

A TV/radio personality friend of mine and I were IM’ing, and she said “I know I’m being cryptic. I just don’t know what to say anymore.” I realized that she was so used to having a script, that it was hard for her to just … talk. That generated this:

Real people will have/
conversations based on NOT/
knowing what to say.
