For our poetry enthusiasts, we present to you this week’s edition of Jason Wright’s Jagged Thoughts, courtesy of our friends at Oddball Magazine. Enjoy.
Welcome to the Renaissance of thought
Where festivals begin and people dance
where the beautiful mix with
the poor with the rich
the stoned with the sober
the drunk with the rest.
This is a celebration of tattoos and bruises
Love and longing,
A drama and a comedy
A theatrical production of Macbeth
This is the beginning of a new bloom breathing
This is a dream in between
subway trains and
peace thru pain, ingrained in my brain,
to teach myself restraint, honesty, and regret
This is the 11th inning in game 7 of a seven game stretch
This is the Renaissance of a new thought process,
The best medicine for me
Is this pen
And this notebook
Titled truth be told.
No more lies here folks, its time to rewind back to a happier time
Because that’s all we got, introducing the new renaissance.
