Since I haven’t been doing many posts lately on the blog, I figured I’d share another poem from my upcoming collection. It’s coming along great by the way. I’m almost done editing all the poems. I’m coming up on the last few and there’s a really hard one in there to get perfect. After that I’ll be sending it to a few people who’ll help me tweak things and get it ready for my final edit. Then well, it’ll almost be in people hands
Sometime after the first “final” draft is complete I’ll be revealing the cover and title of my collection. So be on the look out, I’ll probably be bombarding you from multiple fronts with that one (from many blogs).
In the meantime, here’s a poem I wrote awhile ago. It’s a found poem. I think I made a “mix tape” for someone and used the song titles for this poem. I just forget if I made the actual tape itself or just put a list together. It’s been awhile as I said.
Side question, for when I get the collection out there. Since these are song titles and not actually my words, is there a need to cite each song on the copyright’s page? I know lyrics should be cited and all that. Wasn’t sure about just titles, especially in this form. I’m not a fan of going against the rules since it could end up fucking me over in the end. So any advice would help, even if it’s just a link leading me in the right direction.
Now here’s the poem!!
