do what you will
United States
My Prayer

God make me the poet of simplicity,
Force,and clearness. Help me to live
Ever up to ever higher standards. Teach me to lay
A strong,simple,big-rocked wall
Firmly,the first of all,
And to fill in the fissures with the finer stones and clay
Of alliteration,simile,metaphor. Give
Power to point out error in sorrow and in felicity.
Make me a truthful poet,ever true to the voice of my
Call,
Groping about in the blackest night
For ever clearer,dearer light,
Sturdily standing firm and undismayed on a Pillar of
Right,
Working with heart,and soul,and a willing might,
Writing my highest Ideal large in whatsoever I write,
Truthfully,loftily,chivalrously,and cheerfully ever,
Fearfully,never.

-e. e. cummings

i'm graduating in a few months. gonna be kicked out into the real world. it's just starting to set in now, since i spent the better part of yesterday and today hacking my resume down from two-and-a-half pages to one. am i employable? i guess we'll see

in a free-verse and form poetry class now. don't really like the teacher, which is a shame. however, got the chance to write a sestina, and it turned out pretty good, which was nice. so, i'm gonna post it along with the recommendation to try it out, you learn a lot about how words and sentences can fit together.

shameless self-promotion: my friends and i have a game where they give me a topic (undoubtedly highly inappropriate) and i think of a haiku about it on the spot. it's pretty enjoyable, so i made it into a twitter page, www.twitter.com/haikubyben. check it out if you feel motivated. DISCLAIMER: not for the faint of heart!
