Day 11: Write a poem based on your favorite lyric
I am overcome by the process of living
With what they throw back and what I can catch
And I try to pull the buckets of tears over my sail
To take me out to the vastness.
And I see your arms and a stretch it made
From your skin brought a wave
Of a happy disaster, what a surprise.
And as the wave cast, Your sweat pushed me through,
To the undiscovered temples.
And your words salted my tongue and eyes
As bubbles orbed around me
And we floated past the waving grass.
“My life in an upturned boat, marooned on a cliff
You brought me a great big flood
And you gave me a lift
To care, what a gift
You tell me with your tongue
And your breath was in my lungs
And you float over the rift”
“Simple Song” by The Shins
These next songs of the week are sort of a surprise for me. Especially since I was surprised by Björk’s newest single. As for the song by The The, I heard it on a trailer for the movie Lady Bird, but I believe I’ve known this song for a long time, I just could never pinpoint what it was called. Well, I hope you enjoy these new songs of the week!
Blissing me by Björk
This song gives me so much inspiration for my future writings. Like I said in a previous post, I can’t wait for Björk’s upcoming album!
This is the Day by The The
That Easy by Yellow Days
This is a song I like to play in my Fallin Down Playlist. He recently released a new album, including this song.
Give it a listen give music a chance.
ON OCTOBER 1 I attended a concert for one of my most favorite artists ever
What I forgot was that The Garden is touring with Mac Demarco’s group. I bought these tickets to ACL Live about maybe six months ago and what I only new what that The Flamming Lips was performing with a opening performance of Mac Demarco (which is who I really wanted to see, but I do like The Flamming Lips). Anyway, I had no idea that The Garden was going to perform. The week before the concert I kept getting emails reminding me to print my tickets before the concert. At the end of the email it had the line up which was:
The Garden 8:00
Mac Demarco 8:50
Flamming Lips 10:40
And I completely flipped out. My boyfriend told me not to get my hopes up. But why would they even put that in the email? Was my ticket finally fully worth what I was paying for. And what do you know…….The Garden came out and did an amazing set. Nothing could describe how happy I was to see them. Me and RJ where up in the balcony assigned seating in the first row so the view was perfect. The only problem was that no one in the balcony wanted to stand and jam out. Technically the population of the crowd was 80% in their forties with no idea who Mac Demarco or The Garden was. Me and RJ were itching so bad to stand up but we didn’t because we would block people behind us. Next time though, we will see Mac in the pit. Damn, I can’t even describe the feeling when I saw him, it was so surreal.

Hello my Birdies, lately I’ve been writing a lot of poetry and reading books and it slipped my mind to talk about music and my songs of the week. This is what I’ve been listening to recently:
Baby Blue by King Krule
Late Bloomers by The Growlers
I’m on my way to go listen he album Ctrl by SZA. I heard some really good things about it so I can’t wait to hear it, especially because she is a female artist.
Give it a listen, give music a change.
