Pristine Snow

My cynical thoughts are cyclical
My whimsical ideas heal physical
My clinical self-care arrive in a trickle
My tangible thoughts to words, fickle

So what do I do to communicate this to you?
Sit here raging mind to ruminate a word true?
I bring a white flag; betray fate, bring a crew
Stomp me in the dirt to let my hate brew

It worked for others, so why not again
You could have healed with me as a friend
We howl in fear of our shadow until the end
But our fate was set beyond comprehend

Life is novel, they all agree
They will not let us burn this tree
We failed our claims of minds free
Bee-like benevolence bestows brutes' brains

They stained our legacy, but we will never know
Centuries from now, with return of pristine snow
Our ancestors decry our coveting golden glow
Yet forgiveness in heart, a trait we never did show.

Do you normally dislike poetry? Me too! It turns out, I like writing it, but I cringe at the thought of the stereotypical puffy culture surrounding it. If I want to smell my own farts all day, I stuff my belly with garlic and onions, thank you very much.

Anyway, if you want more poetry without all the stuffy pseudo-intellectual silliness attached, subscribe to my newsletter below. Unsubscribe at anytime. I respect your time by respecting mine. I don’t send frivolous bullshit.

AGHKGH! [email protected]&# OFF POPUP!

Sorry, sorry! I just thought since you've been on this site for longer than average, you might hear me out?

Why do you do this to me, Ian...

Okay, okay, I'll be quick! I have a newsletter to keep you up-to-date on my content and projects. If my stuff tickles your pickle, help us both out by subscribing!

Also, I don't do anything shady or aggressive with your email address. I'll only send you the good stuff and won't share your email with any person/provider that isn't working for me to serve you better.

'Serve me better.' What deliciously vague jargon. Is this where you pretend to be me and you make me respond with a contrived form of consent because you're bold enough to assume this cute little chat interface gimmick is enough to actually get me to sign up?

Ummm... uhhh... ahh... Sign up and get exclusive discounts and early access!!!! Come ooooon! Induced scarcity is fun!


...alright, well, I'll leave it up to you.
