-ON HIATUS-

No need for points- this is just a placeholder for my close readings/analyses of poems.

"I'm not much of a poet, nor am I much of a critic, but I believe strongly that the key to writing poetry well is reading it well- reading many different styles, from many different poets, and understanding how their poems are put together. There's far more to a good poem than a rhyme and a metaphor or two.

The poems I pick will not be from deviantART, but from known/published poets (some fringe poets as well as Frost, Williams, Keats, and so forth), though I do plan on doing some dA poetry features sometime.
"

List of close readings so far:
--I. Ars Poetica by Archibald MacLeish: falareste.deviantart.com/journ…
--II. At Roane Head by Robin Robertson: falareste.deviantart.com/journ…
--III. Evening Hawk by Robert Penn Warren: falareste.deviantart.com/journ…

:bulletgreen:Updates every Friday/Saturday.

Journal History

Got what is very possibly an abscessed wisdom tooth. Joy.

Also, going to be taking my own advice tomorrow and forcing myself to write a paragraph of something, and then keep going with it every day. Wonder if I should open a tumblr or Dreamwidth for it. tumblr's community has been seriously trying my patience as of late (apparently now it's ableist to use the word "crippling" to describe major debt or depression, according to the SJWs), but I do like tumblr's customization options more. Maybe I'll just find a way to rig a Sta.sh folder for it.

That's all assuming what I write isn't so horrendously embarrassing that I can't share it, though.

Anyway... as the title promised, I dug through some archives for my university's creative writing club and found some lovely flash fiction pieces I bookmarked. Here they are, for your reading pleasure (and hopefully inspiration):

"An orange ruled the world."
- from The Orange by Benjamin Rosenbaum

"The girl who doesn’t eat comes to Jimmy’s each day at the same time."
- from Baker's Helper by CB Anderson

"My heart — I thought it stopped. So I got in my car and headed for God."
- from In a Tub by Amy Hempel

"Gary drank single malt in the night, out on the porch that leaned toward the ocean. His mother, distracted, had shut off the floodlights and he did not protest against the dark."
- from Currents by Hannah Bottomy

"A man walking in the rain eating a banana. Where is he coming from. Where is he going."
- from Stories by John Edgar Wideman

Aka the last month of this semester, finals included. Just a small update to get that last entry off my page.

Made a B+ in a math class after two years of Cs. Thank counseling, friends (in-system and out), and learning to not worry about making As, and focusing on passing and actually doing my best instead.

Physical health is still in the gutters, emotional health has been on the upswing. Got back into painting and drawing (to be uploaded to my other account later), which has been doing wonders for my mood, which hopefully means writing will soon follow.

Currently busy packing for moveout. There's so much to clean! Systemmates would like to help, but we've been having trouble swapping around as of late, probably due to exhaustion. Oh well.

That's all at the moment.
