"...Thanks. I appreciate it. It's my new thing. Last year, I happened to be reading my husband's novel and I fell in love with him again. I liked the way he used words to be cool. He created lots of new meaning and an awesome new world. But I'm not into storytelling. I like wordz to be by themselves. Some of my most mind-blown moments are when poemz break out into one word in each line. You see the power of one word and how they build on each other.
So I'm a poet now! I write about my kidz mostly. But the key is that you don't know that. I just want the poem to bring you to a place of unconditional love. Naturally. Easily.
I mean you have to be able to feel unconditional love, though. I'm writing for good people. I don't care if some asshole doesn't get it.
It's the process too. I bought a fountain pen with an actual ink well. It's so cute! I effin' love it! There's something about the pace of poetry. The borderline pointlessness of it. How it will ever earn money? I mean not unless it's hijacked by something cheesy.
The art of pure poetry is "Hey, I took some time outside myself. Inside myself. Whatever. I'm going to read it to you." It's so meaningless but it can move a mountain in someone's mind really.
I just read Derek Walcott's 'Season of Phantasmal Peace'. I'm not crazy about his other stuff, but O-M-G! I love that poem. I have to do something like that! I hope I already did!..."
