Reblog: Portraits in Motion

I wrote a poem and it sucked. So I sent it to Lex over at nerd on the bridge to make it better. Enjoy.

Please be advised: Fauxetry is renegade kin to the fine arts (it’s rumoured), irreverent in the presence of convention, contemptuous and despicably disposed toward scholar and dunce alike. Lawless. Gung-ho. Truly appreciated by the scant few, yet undeterred in crusade. Universal translators will remain offline – fauxetry is untranslatable.

“Fauxetry: Gone Mental”

Information traffic on the mindly interstate
sticky pavement
worn out lines
an on-ramp meant to obviate.

Intricate design
of no design at all.

The metaphor’s been done before
unapologetically banal
but it’s the most descriptive way
I find
to draw the system of my mind.

“Great minds all think alike,” it’s said
but I would rather like to contend
that nothing is more untrue instead.

Great, feeble, simple, grand:
in the sand
the mind is too complex to draw.
