For Your Attention and The Gist (poems)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 15 April 2014 · 48 views

For Your Attention
 
This is a note
for our parents
stuck to the bottom
of the bench in the park
with pre- chewed bright blue gum.

This is a petition
to be sent to our rulers
to be signed by the people they 
fear most, and with exactly zero signatures.

This is graffiti
etched onto dirty walls
in order to get them cleaned.

This is a sentence...

The Changeling Who Was A Fairy
 
You are human, but you lack humanity. Who can define “humanity” anymore though, now that humanoids and other even less human creatures fall into the definition? Humans were defined by their bodies and minds. As such, you are defined in the same way; by your DNA and blood, but that does not bel...

The Inky Girls

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 09 April 2014 · 49 views

Etched first onto a lithographic limestone plate,
these girls destroy as much as they create
and they don’t just pose for a photo,
they juxtapose,
with porcelain skin white as ghosts
and hair and eyes as black as leopard seals.
 
An inky girl knows
that to survive you must dive
deep down inside yourself and reside
there, far away from the gras...

What's Mine (a poem)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 02 April 2014 · 112 views

About the poem:
I've been watching a lot of spoken word performances lately. It's addictive. I can't get enough of them, and if you haven't heard any I recommend subscribing to Button Poetry on youtube; they post videos of some really amazing spoken word poets.  S poken word (slam) is a lot different than traditional poetry. The emphasis is on the...

If Green Day Albums Were Students (Sketch Series)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Art 31 March 2014 · 204 views

Basically, someone made a post on tumblr personifying each Green Day album as a school student:
 

1039/Smooth : The cool senior that everyone looks up to.
 
Kerplunk! : The one who gets stoned in the bathroom between classes.
 
Dookie : The kid who pulled the senior prank and became an overnight sensation. 
 
Insomniac : The kid...

The Choosing Ceremony (A Short Story)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 28 March 2014 · 97 views

Not a month before the choosing ceremony was announced , Christoph and I had spoken of a lack of connection with our givens. It seemed to us that, by now, they should be something more than simple care-givers and disciplinarians, but provide an emotional connection. This connection was something which we could not define, yet which we knew was absent....

The Odds and Ends (Art Series)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Art 22 March 2014 · 141 views

The Odds and Ends : Characters who have no-one.
 
I created eight characters who are alike in no other way other than the fact that they have no-one else to share their life with. They are different species, from different universes, different sizes and shapes... and each has something which occupies their time, but which they've told no-one about be...

Upon the ocean there is (a poem)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 20 March 2014 · 71 views

a ship
with creamy sails,
driven by
winds and gales
toward the horizon.
And when I meet my destination,
I continue forwards to oblivion
until I meet it again.
The tedium takes me nowhere
but further away from
where I was before,
but the thing I am most trying to leave behind
is forever trapped inside with me
for I am harbouring a fugitive.

A feeling of d...

Homing (Writing Competition Entry)

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 18 March 2014 · 92 views

A turtle died today.
A young Green found at Barr’s Bay;
his shell was intact and covered
in paisley patterns and algae,
his face; encrusted with brine,
his minute carapace;
emaciated,
small head lolling on its side,
marble eyes half-closed.
You swear
you saw his throat move,
animate, to take another rasping breath
and then slowly realize the finalit...

A letter concerning the Sargasso Sea around Bermuda

Posted by Dirntbag , in Writing 15 March 2014 · 105 views

This is a letter I plan to send to The Royal Gazette (one of our newspapers) to attempt to get the government to go forward with the Blue Halo organization's plans to make a marine reserve in a portion of Bermuda's EEZ which is part of the Sargasso Sea. More info here.
 
About the Letter
 
Basically, the Blue Halo wants to have this marine res...
