For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
- Audrey Hepburn

December cool breath, fire raw blue metal, paper’s white faces of silver light and their silenced sun whispered of a girl holding a car seat waving for days never to listen, absent of happy, murmuring from where leaves hear everything, yet you are the single heat that fuse light, air, pump blood into a girl’s heart, she waited waving to the sky to die.

this was a piece of work I submitted to my English teacher as an assignment. I went through many books and wrote down each source I took words from and put them into the style of a Found Poem.

Very avant garde, and its totally pulled off, which is hard to do. This one hits the heart and mind deep and to a subconscious level, which is the goal of avant garde pieces. Very well done.

"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"
