Classic

I guess you could say this poem is a bit meta.

The Imaginative Conservative

I was just thinking about how much I appreciate poetry, and how much I appreciate some of my best friends, who are some of the most eloquent, graceful poets I have ever met. I wrote this poem as a way of expressing appreciation and camaraderie with them. I hope you enjoy!

Classic

Their hands grace the atmosphere—

Gliding through with the poise of madness

Like they’re signing a poem in the air we breathe—

Do they even need sound?

I’m moved by the possession of their bodies

As they move through a sea

Of their own expression.


Nothing strikes my fancy

More than an antique, a classic,

The aged soreness and complaint

Of young visionaries navigating a modern world

That depresses them with knowledge

As much as it does me.


In my fancy, multifaceted dreams,

Maybe someday,

Our classic message will become one,

Whether the weather

Will keep us together—

These theories are terrors to test.

But maybe something a little simpler

Can join with the complexity

Of the history of relics of the past

And foster something meaningful

That refuses to aptly shatter.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
