Mission .02: RestThe word of the alley ways and streets were all the same. Dirty-faced children turned ally and friend told story after story of people running through forests, walls, and dilapidated towns in search of freedom or reprieve. With a thank you and a fresh batch of apples, any bit of information can be bought if you knew who to talk to and how to smile.
Fidel knew without knowing, and did without thought of malice. The team that seemed the most normal was the target this time, yet deep in the boy an unsettling feeling started to fester. It was because of these people, innocent or not, that his family was struggling now more than ever before. It was because of these people that many of his neighbors and pals were dead, and-slash-or dying. It was because of these awful, horrible people that he felt restless, confused, and very, awfully, tired.
Yet the feeling that pulled at the thorny vines in his psyche was not related to anger in the least, at least anger would’ve been normal to feel.
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
