Random Poem:

nodding yes and politely saying no
guelah

I gave way to fate,
 1
to gravity,
 2
to Isaac Newton
 3
and the giant Washington apples
 4
Phaedrus ate upon his return;
 5
 
 
I let loose the ballast
 6
winding my soul,
 7
liberated the potential
 8
energizing my latent
 9
consciousness; and
 10
 
 
watched classical thought
 11
acquiesce, its wooden frame
 12
carved in rigid wood by
 13
rigid minds yielded slowly
 14
to romantic ideals,
 15
but it relented,
 16
a reluctant harmony that
 17
pled to be released
 18
 
 
so I let it fly-
 19
briefly,
 20
only to stop it mid-air;
 21
expand
 22
           laterally,
 23
explore perpendicular
 24
                   a
 25
                   n
 26
                   g
 27
                   l
 28
                   e
 29
                   s
 30
to the target before me,
 31
but always,
 32
always following the north star
 33
