“i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)”
– E.E. Cummings

Run With Scissors Because

Midwest Fantasy Writes

run w scissorsRun with scissors

Break made up rules

   because who the fuck made them anyway

Love more than one

   because hearts are big and have lots of room

Live how you wish

   because the only rules come from within

Scattered Notebooks

Scritch, scratch by faint candle light,
deep and long into the night –
a man sits down and begins to write –

a new country is born.

Scratch, splotch, by dim light’s glow,
the words, ideas, and the fanfare grows.
On a page are scrawled a nations notes

and an anthem’s scored.

Scritch, drip, by sun’s bright shine,
we feel the love from a dreamer’s rhyme,
recorded carefully line by line,

penned on a summer morn.

Scratch and scratch, by the warm hearth fire
a man is hunched, over words inspired,
which live and breathe thru the test of time

and Juliet we mourn.

Scritch, and scratch, while cannons rage,
in a modest room, words across a page,
a thoughtful man frees a race of slaves

and ends a violent war.
