Bad Poetry Friday

I was still writing bad poetry well into my 20’s apparently.

 

Unrequited Love and a Mix CD (12/08/03)

Waiting for the phone to ring

uncertain if I should just pick it up and dial you

Don’t know if you’re expecting my call

What would Joan Jett do?

What would Joan Jett do?

 

Putting a pen to paper

but the words come out all wrong

Don’t want to appear too eager

don’t want to come off too strong

What would Joni Mitchell do?

What would Joni Mitchell do?

 

Night dreams turn into fantasies

don’t want to wake up and find out

you were never there

and I’m fifteen again and pining for false realities

What would Janis Joplin do?

What would Janis Joplin do?

 

The answers aren’t in old song lyrics

or written in the stars

Screw you

Screw love

Screw guitars

  1. I love this. Could I get you to record yourself speaking this, and give to me for use in a future sound collage? xoxo Rachel
