Just a bundle of shorter works I've held onto over the last 5 years..
Feedback is welcomed.

These are pieces that have never really made the cut into performance, or publication.

Enjoy* ?


~~~~•
Hold the spoon

Close to you

Feed yourself

What they lose

They'll tell you that you're full-

But listen

As your stomach

Grumbles

It's your time to choose

All that happens to you,

Beautiful


~~~~~~
A life of mine,

Without you by my side-

The best thing to have ever come with time.


~~~~~

You don't even know me.

Oh the irony..

We discussed the realms

And said words like love

Smoked pot from the heavens

Way up above


A metaphorical sign for obvious

Bad timing.


Always

~~~~~~
~But it's okay~

I like the sticks

and

The stones

I'll befriend all of the bones


Words are false presumptions

And still full of unanswered questions

So

Why

Even

Bother


To open a mouth like yours.


~~~
~Done~

With a big flat

Un-enthusiastic

Maybe I'm just happy


Im jitterin' in my boots though

With excitement,

Intriguatory

Coping


Dissect and dismember me



My greatest hope.



Nothing?


~~~~~~~
~Days of distance~


Raise your fist


March

until it's more than dark.


What need be mustered

To inspire..


Ever elusive/

Like clouds

And cotton


Bathe me in mist

Cloud glider


Waist in distaste

Feather worker


Is identifiable mental illness all I'll ever be working toward?


Hands and feet

Skin

To

Skin


When your receipt is misplaced,

What will you do with those photos

of my

bones..

Whenever I read/hear your shorter works, I'm always struck by the natural haiku cadence in the piece...Even though the subject matter is completely different, I always think of Basho...That's some serious Dragon talent.

Wow, quite a compliment there..
@Bey
I haven't read much Basho, but I'm gonna work on changing that!
The summary on wikipedia says enough.

Happy to hear my sense of rhythm comes through with these. That's what I'd been most worried about.

Just wait for what I have in store this year.. >:]

About us

  • Squat the Planet is the world's largest social network for misfit travelers. Join our community of do-it-yourself nomads and learn how to explore the world by any means necessary.

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$80.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $80.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $80.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Latest Status Updates

I regret to announce that I will no longer be associating myself with squat the planet due to a very deep and nuanced personal disagreement and subsequent disrespect. If you would like to get the full story, feel free to contact me directly. I will still be hosting this year's annual party as i have for the past four years.
