New Poem: “Caught”

Caught has a couple of meanings to me but I don’t want to go plant my interpretations by discussing them here. I’d be interested to hear what this poem is about for you.

The music I was listening to while writing this was “Yora Wa Akeru (Remix)” by Toe and the Mercury Program.

New Poem: “Dissonance”

Dissonance has a number of themes but was born out of a need to address the things that keep me awake at night or distract me when I’m alone. Those past thoughts that plague you; the ones that make you talk to yourself when you do the dishes or shout out loud to yourself when you’re in the house on you’re own. It’s okay, (it’s all right) I know you do it too! 😀
