"We still live! We still love! We shall die dancing in each other's arms!" -Dr. Faustus


Jotting down my soul in blue eyeliner
as i gag and dry-heave emotion
on the backs of cheap paper placemats
only then do i recall
that my fuchsia-tipped fingers
were formed by the same hands
that sculpted the broad mysterious curves
of the ocean
and conducted the very first
symphony of
night.


The author's comments:
This piece is all about how inspiration strikes at the oddest of times. I originally wrote this poem on the back of a library reciept in purple crayon. However, I feel that that is the best part of writing...the spontaneity! It makes me realize just how incredible the gift of writing is.
