I, sort of, can’t stand writing poems.
- It’s easy to play with words.
- It gives you a false pretense of being “deep”, I don’t want to be deep, I want to be good.
- It’s really hard to write a good poem, not that I am scared, I think I am still not good enough. I think I will be if I try hard enough. Everybody thinks that. 😉
- I do not know the technicalities.
- Not many people understand them, they can’t see beyond the wordplay, not that these people understand prose either… I think I just wrote #5 to take the tally to 5 😉
but still, I, sort of, love reading them a lot!
The other day I watched Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe. It totally blew me away!!!
It used all of The Beatles’ songs and used them well. And (blasphemy to The Beatles’ fans) the one song I had never heard was “Let it be”.
Once I heard it, I heard it again and again. And the song, and the film sort of pushed me to a point where I had to indulge in some word play.
What came out did look like a poem, but, it’s probably too hacky-faulty to be a poem. Not that any of other work here is any better, but, it’s just that I do not want you to think I am deep.
So, for the lack of a better word… let’s call it an “Un-Poem“
I called it “let it be” inspired by The Beatles’ song “Let It Be”.
🙂 🙂 🙂
P.S. I do want you to think I am good, but, I won’t say it out loud… hehe.
