E- Poem

I already Tweeted this.

It already went viral;
this message about life:
A cardboard box.
That we all have in common.

Pale Excitement:
this attachment of reality
this link to the real life.
A cardboard box.

Bland Awe:
the place no one has been
the space we long to be.
Real as cardboard
with Real emptiness inside.
That we all have in common.

I have no illusions that this is cheery or "wonder"-like, just a bit sad...and possibly sadder still that it was inspired by a dream.

  1. Like you say, this is a sad poem; and that sadness is reflected our modern society in many ways. But it is also intriguing because of its depth. The conflict within the lines "Pale Excitement" and "Bland Awe" could be a metaphor for our young internet generation where we have the world at our fingertips, but are often bored and seek more. As you know, there are a lot of societal changes occurring right now amongst youth and their identity. This poem is trying to tie it all together. It is only at the surface, and it might not be completely succeeding; but it is still there.
