LIT 150

My name is Shawn

I started writing little as a way to get a friend of mine to read poetry. He doesn’t like to read. These are less than 150 words. That’s manageable, even for him. First time through takes less than a minute.

Poetry is a way to cram more meaning into less space. That’s what I’m trying to do. Yes, by that definition, clown cars and casseroles are also a kind of poetry. I think that makes sense.

I can feel it coming in the air tonight. And I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life. Can’t you feel it coming in the air tonight?

Well when you told me you were drowning—how could I ever forget?
