Poetry Contest

see below
We all create images of ourselves on the interwebs that project how we want the world to perceive us.. It is often implicit and not so much conscious, but i believe that if we examine our digital self we can see a disconnect between that identity and what we really think of ourselves (maybe it is just me? lol).

This competition is designed to get you to take a step back and compare, analysis, and introspect about your online identity.  Think about it deeply.. become uncomfortable.. and write something new!

The objective is to not only address the dissonance but also to express it poetically (why else are we here?)

this shall be an open vote, because i like to be perceived on this site as selfless, when in reality I am far from it

Office Automation Assistant With a Poet's Soul...

Some times I wonder how he is doing without it.

Shattered, attempting to rebuild.

Adoptive father of one,

among my failures
Disgraced husband, Jack Mormon, and Christian heretic,

Just saying

When it come to accounts here:
I'm not sure all the women are women.
Peek under their online skirts.
You'll probably find some men.

Thank you HHMCameron! I can surely relate to your words! <3

i am sure you are correct Autumn.. I think people have less incentive to fabricate and curate their image here than on facebook for instance.. We are somewhat protected by anonymity with the information this website asks us to share compared to a social media site's profile questions.

I am who I am

My name is Grace
I chose this
not my parents
to them I am someone else
but Grace will suffice
for our Cyberworld

I am not graceful
nor am I full of grace
I just hope the name
rub off on me

if at all I am a disgrace
to myself and to some
I am gentle and giving
some people think
I am weak

but don't take my silence
for ignorance
I absorb
I learn and file
in the cabinet of my mind

I can dissect your thoughts
and put them in a row
ticking up which is what
and what goes where

I just don't care enough
to do that, I respect you
for who you want to be
here, you can be a prince or a warrior

I do not invent my temper
nor do I curry favours
I am just me...as I am
a person, renamed
in Maya.

Smiling out and frowning in
trying to stop from caving in

Fake smiles painted on this clown
Trying to be noticed outside this town

Scared of letting people know my face
fear of being a disgrace

Online I don't need a name
Or a picture to play the game

it simply allows me to be free
of the person who hates me most, me.

First to the storm
And last to laugh
Of three attempts failed
I sigh and keep walking

Much More Me

I don't want you
to see me
in the streets
and think
Hey, it's Willow!
I don't want to know
what you see
when looking
at my face
at my body
I wear them
but they aren't me
I want you to know
who I am
how I think
what I feel
not what you see
I promise
inside
is more beautiful
much more me

Just Another Poet

Hi,
Iím a guy name Kim
Thatís what happens when your dad serves in the Korean War
He names you after the enemy

Iím a frostbit blue neck
From the St. Croix River Valley
Of Western Wisconsin

Pure farm dog
4-H and all that
Went to a small school

Spent my youth hunting deer
Running a trap line
And chasing coons with my hound

Laugh, but if it werenít for selling critter skins
I never would have been able to
Become the first member of my family
To graduate from college

I worked in a steel mill
All my adult life
Iím a mechanical engineer

As a unionist Iíve been active in politics
And have never been more
Disappointed with an election
Then I am now

Iíve loved poetry all my life
But it wasnít till I came down with
CANCER
That I ever tried submitting my works publicly

I joined DU as a distraction while undergoing
Chemo and Radiation
Iíve grown to love this place
And my beloved beautiful poets

Note:
I told my oncologist that I didn't want to play
The cancer card
She told me,
"Mr. Solem, considering how near death you were
you have the right to play the cancer card for the rest
of your life." †I cried.

While here I discovered my Walther White side
I love writing erotica and romance
And at this point in life
I donít give a shit who knows
Or what they think

If any of you kindred spirits
Wants to drop by
My Facebook page to say ĎHi!í
Iíd be honored

Yours truly
Kim Solem
Aka Kimmy Alan
Aka snugglebuck

"Peek up my skirt and i'll bitch slap you"

Well then I guess that means you won't be letting me spank you in front of everyone at the DU convention. †Now I'll have to think of something else to do to get the orgy started.

Who I am
is what I am
and what I am
is what you read
between those lines
of the words I write
those sad decaying meanings
that still continues
to try
to find some light
within this darkness
of this ignorance
that we live in
