I like that - poet-try. I'm a real young poet, and these are my young, explicitly poetic ramblings.

poetry is sitting down and taking some pictures out of your mind, taking stock in the moment and recording it. i used to do more on the spot reporting through poetry; long explorations of nights on the town without regular sentence structure. i'll warn you before you click on any of that below:

some juicy ones written about
