What do you get when you close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and write anything that comes to your head? I had heard of writers doing this before. Virginia Woolf, Michael Cunningham, John Frusciante of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, others. It’s a great exercise to loosen that writer’s block- that’s for sure. My first stream of consciousness experiment- unedited, right from the mad hat.
painted orchids around my
neckline tied with window
shopping around neon-lit
mannequins i’ve asked to
marry me, marry me
Mary I promise you our odds
even out my god
of probability and the universe
will tremble to it’s knees
when you utter the words
like magic will free my tiny locked
heart and explode in a magnificent
big bang my veins pink champagne
dinosaurs in my stomach
Say yes, yes, yes
now, not long now
before it’s closing time, again.
