On monsters and men
2013/02/06 § 2 Comments
Poetry group today was really good.
There was some talk about suicide – out of the seven people who were there, five of them had experienced suicide/attempts of people who they were close with and there was so much anger. Anger is such a beautiful and cleansing driving force. There was also some discussion around the topic of (the lack of) rebellion in today’s society, and on unwanted feelings. I also got to read two of my poems, which was awkward, and the group felt like I really opened up to them apparently, which is nice but still kind of awkward. Got a new theme of the week – movement – which will be interesting to write about. Last week brought up a lot of things unrelated to the topic (monsters), so it will be fun to see what comes out of this week’s.
On a slightly related note, I walked into the campus bookshop today and the clerk actually recognised me. I have to stop buying books. Honest to God, this is not normal.
