Listen to Iron & Wine's Flightless Bird, American Mouth and be mesmerized. Now. :stare:
Gretchen was a wallflower
gasping to grow roots on wallpaper.

She was the laughter wrapping in 
after drowning
in anti-depressants. 

She depressed herself  with the idea
that I will be here
to write poetry for her,
the fact that this poem
will let people know her
in more ways
than those pills 
would ever allow.

There were tigers under her bed,
rats in her cabinets.
She kept those tigers on leash
as a plate of food meant for her
sat for the mice. 

Gretchen was a skinny girl
with an obese heart. 
She used to sit and dance.
She did the impossible
within her medicated possibilities.

I remember
when she let the ants have her flesh,
let the bullies pick on her, let the nerds
use her for pride and let me
write poems off her misery. 

She said, misery is something we can all relate to. 
She said, help me. 
She said, I am going out tonight.
She said, I'm Not Okay (I Promise) or she sang it.
Either way she let us know in song
or art or screams or scars - we knew and all I ever did
was write poetry. 

Gretchen - wallflower
gasping for air
on the shadows
of the wall, 


forgive me
and read this poem.
I wrote it for you
the same time most heroes
become recognized. 
Seriously, they are just shining today with their coolness! :la:

I break sharpie pens
trying to be Pocahantas, 
singing every color of the wind
and smiling
because this is America
and this is New York
and we are the colors
of the human wind. 
On Making Art in the New World
I wrote this for the Weekly Prompt at Live-Love-Write

My inspiration was my recent piano lessons, painting and, of course, punk rock. 

Please feel free to leave any kind of feedback! I'm open to all suggestions, critiques and comments.
