Pastels for Versace
I'll be honest, I've been struggling with this poem for years. It's now better than I've had it before and maybe I'm being my own worst critic, but I feel like it's not done and it's missing something. I'm open to suggestions/critques.
Aside from this, I hope you enjoy it.
Take a chance and dive right in,
the water's fine.
Plumb the line
Swim out to the masses
Put on your life preserver and dive.
in a sea of narcoleptic conformity.
Treading water to stay alive,
drown in anonymity.
It's all a dance and I dance alone
The music's fine
And I keep the time.
In three four standard meter.
Give me your hand, I’ll be fine.
on a floor of nihilistic uniformity.
Keeping the rhythm to stay on beat
I Dance in anonymity
