Poetry Break

1 Comment

During #NaNoWriMo, I tend to write a lot of poetry at the beginning of my writing sessions while I’m trying to get my mind into the creative headspace. And whenever I write poetry, I tend to look over and read/tweak older stuff. Over the next few days I’ll be posting some short pieces that no one has seen/heard yet. That’s right, constant reader… World Premiers!

To start out, here’s a quick little poem that I jotted down in a notebook sometime in late 2008.

How Empires Fall

Love is thee quest
for stability
and
Lust thee quest
for novelty

Stability killed Rome
and
Novelty killed the Romans
