I thought of this poem when I saw a kid shot in the streets of LA

A shady friend for torrid days
Is easier to find
Than one of higher temperature
For frigid hour of mind.

The vane a little to the east
Scares muslin souls away;
If broadcloth breasts are firmer
Than those of organdy,

Who is to blame? The weaver?
Ah! the bewildering thread!
The tapestries of paradise!
So notelessly are made!

A shady friend for torrid days
Is easier to find
Than one of higher temperature
For frigid hour of mind.(this verse is about the way my friend was gunned down by gangs)

The vane a little to the east
Scares muslin souls away;
If broadcloth breasts are firmer
Than those of organdy,
(this verse is for the afterlife)

Who is to blame? The weaver?
Ah! the bewildering thread!
The tapestries of paradise!
So notelessly are made!
(this verse is for the pigs!)

Yes, hes going to elevate until he reaches the outer limits of the atmosphere and then his head will implode causing nasty things to happen. Should I write a Rap about it?


EDIT: This was in reply to some slightly stupid remarks. Slightly lost in their own 'not knowing'. The posts have been deleted. Hence this edit to explain the meaning of this post (and to emphasise he's being sarcastic).

jees ppl grow up some pls

your way of writing its not nerdy, just it takes a little more time to understand it, you have to read it with a open mind, and focus on the words a bit more. i had an idea of where you were coming from when i read it, and your brief explaination told me i was on the right track. Poetry is a form of art, that when ppl look at it, they can possibly see things another way, different from the writers or other ppl's. hopefully i'll see more from you.

I didn't immediately get the first two stanzas. And i still don't fully get them now. But the last part i did. Who are we to blame? The system..and all those who conciesly and sub-consciesly 'work' it...

It was good. Though maybe a bit too on the abstract side. Too within itself. Little to no 'link' for the reader to get a hold of. To connect with.

Still, i understand this kind of piece. It's personal. And cos it's so cryptic and 'within itself', in a way, it becomes more personal than one which is eay to understand n all that...i've done many before. Though also cos i don't like to show too much personal and 'real' emotion as such...distance is what i'm getting at.
