Similar Deviations
I never intended making this a canonical piece (yes, I consider some of my work "canon" and other pieces "non-canon" - I am a narcissist), but it cropped up again in my head today as a succinct representation of what was going on around me.

Stoned for the first time in almost 5 days, I was singing along to Neutral Milk Hotel in the car and thought "Damn, my voice sounds good today!" But then I thought "Or, maybe I'm just stoned." It's entirely possible these thoughts actually left my lips - if they had, no sooner had they when I thought "I am on A) fire, B) drugs."

As soon as it cropped up in my daily life of its own volition - it was decided the piece would be its own.

Imagine, then, my FURTHER surprise when I realized, upon reading the original version from earlier this month, that I had in fact REVERSED the order of the options. "What difference does that make?" you say. "Every difference," I say. "How so?" says you. Well, thinking that you are first on drugs before considering that you may be "on fire" (on a roll) is an entirely different assessment of yourself than thinking you're on fire before considering the possibility that the drugs are responsible for making you feel this way. It's kind of a glass half-empty, glass half-full sort of thing.

This revision represents the most current way I feel about myself in terms of this poem.

A different name fills the void for each person. Who belongs in your blanks?

I just wrote this.

I'm getting an abortion tomorrow.

EDIT: after a long hard think, I decided to keep the baby.

More on that later.

Wrote this while thinking of a good friend who passed away earlier this year (August 6, 2007) while listening to Alexisonfire - Sharks and Danger {the song I listened to continuously after I heard the news}

I am still open to critique :blowkiss:

Well, that's my first deviation of mine I've done in....quite some time. Just wrote it this morning, inspired by 'The Outsider' by A Perfect Circle. (The lyrics to that are the lines in italics)

Inspired by a charming misunderstanding between myself and Ms ~Nikibelia. :nod:
