I was Davey Jones today,
choking all the lies out their gullets,
not letting up until the reality came spewing out
across the conference room
to drip and slide down the bare whiteboard.
Progress at last.
Last Friday I was Fantine,
exposed to the whips of the world
I belted my soul to the vast expance
of the confines of my portable universe, lined with
leather interior and a $9 steering wheel cover.
The impact of metal on bumper and
rubber shatters the dream of her voice into
my far less miserable
But we are all fine for now,
because tomorrow I could be Wolverine,
collar up, chops fluffed and
ready for a fight against eternity
with no cares should the man in black
come to my door.
Entwine the forlorn threads of
the uncertain prospect before me with
cheap wine and cigar smoke in the wind,
so long as,
for a moment a day,
I can be some other than me.
Ah, what a vacation it is
and will be.
I like to put myself in the world and mindset of a creative character, either my own or in these cases, well-known characters of some of my favorite stories. This is also my last poem for NaPoWriMo! So in celebration and in recognition of the Weekly Writing Challenge, I thought I’d see what kinds of things make your day exciting and entertaining! I’ll be writing a follow-up blog (as per my Weekly Writing Challenge instructions) on the results of the question below, depending on if I get any responses at all. Anonymity, just because I think if you want me to know what you chose and elaborate you can in the comments, and I’ll know who you are there. Hope you enjoyed the poetry this past month. More to come, I’m sure. Critique is always welcome and enjoy sharing your relaxation muses! Cheers!
What gets you through the daily hum drum?
