every once in a while i'm afraid i'll wake up from this dream in a white padded room, then i realize that this is no dream.

sorry rob, it just came to me.



character analysis

[let's lose the friction
between fiction and reality
blur the lines]

let's become entirely
unsure of ourselves

holy mary mother of god,
or magdalene, the christ-bitch
whichever we want to be
let mary martin lead the children
away from reality

a new pan for a new age?

let's moralize the situation
make it uncomfortable; controversial even

wear masks and change the world
because it is just a stage

let's misquote shakespeare and moliere
and live our own fucked up tragedies
(but rewrite the ending)

our hearts beat strong under fictitious skies.

I love this nugget of poetry gold. I see you're exploring a new, though somewhat related theme to your previous one. Silence and now fiction. I appreciate your universal sentiments and am impressed by your use of punctuation for emphasis. Bravo, my friend.

I love it!

all the thoughts we've had these past weeks put down into one nicely written poem. I feel the confusement and frustration.

I like the most:

our hearts beat strong under fictitious skies..
