Proseful Poetics – “Time, of me” September 19, 2005

Posted by Matt Hurst in Uncategorized.

(note: the following is a basic introduction for those new yet to “American Dream”. I was drinking when I wrote it last night, but i think there’s a lot of truth to it. After all, I’m relatively sure I know a little about myself. Hope it answers all those intangibles about where I’m coming from. And yes, it could have just as easily been within a prose sentance structure.)

So I’ve been thinking lately…
Boy I’ve got to stop that.
So who am I, you ask –
This strange figure known by wire.
I think myself an artist,
but what does that mean?
A pompous asshole by any measure.
I don’t know much in experience,
Only that by which I read (probably lies).
But of the things I know,
I am sure if what isn’t working.
I know a few things for sure,
I understand even less.
I know what I like
I know what I repress
I know what repulses me
I know that I regress.
What is me
What I am being
Still unsure what is receding
or what is left for being.
Meantime, I know a few things.
At least I know what I don’t
Want to be.
I am me.
And that is just short of resolve,
But at least I am sure to disolve
Into my innermost being
Instead od receding
Into the nothingness
I don’t like believing
In, sides not chosen
Though I am not beholden
To any which philosophy
I can still see
That what is in front
Of me.
Capital letters to start
The sentance served
And ending, period,
Form that I deserve.
