My quick thoughts, back stage, and rants as I try to Teach kids about the Web while learning how to help others build a better Web.

#Poetry: A Poem in Five Parts #smallpoems #writingcommunity

unleash
holes in broken
nows
who claw
through glass
eyes
in hopes of
refactoring
a better tomorrow

Let desire
drive destiny
Set fire and
knives to
Those
Flee
A reality
Me rooted
In thee

I write
  No choice.
       words bleed
into screeds
      seeking
silence
    in a broken soul
pen picking up pieces
and
            wrapping poems
     in pixels

Poetry
allows my
scar tissue
to breath
Whispers
slicing wounds
as words seek
needs
to
bleed

Poetry.
My rudder
to navigate
interstates
  of being

Poetry As Play #Poetyport #clmooc #smallpoems

Given today's poetry prompt of play I had to try something I have never done before: Remix a voice poem in GarageBand

screen shot of garage band with 9 voice tracks

In the shower I came up with the phrase "majestic, frenetic, poetic play", and I thought about how awesome it was for Wendy to play with spoken word in a poetic gift to someone. I wanted to try something new.

So I grabbed a couple phrases from twitter this morning. "Take a Step Back" and "Tinkering As Agentive Feedback" and added "Find Your Answers in Your Poetry and Your Poetry in Your Play"

I then recorded each track...learned you need to silence the other tracks, and then re-recorded all the tracks.

Next I learned you can right click and select "split at masthead" I then moved clips around, played with volume...and of course reverb...cuz you know...rock and roll
