Oval Poem O28

I met my austerity
Targets for January –
Now that it’s February –
I’ll be spending some money!

If you eat enough fresh mint –
Your fart can smell fresh –
Or at least fresher

Some people take drugs
To become more creative –
I self-discipline –
Necessity is key to
Creativity

Introverted bravado –
Is bravado shown
Only to yourself

Notes to this poem…

If you’ve ever given yourself a little pep talk, or rationalized some things to yourself, you can probably understand that if what you said or thought were known without context, you’d probably not be perceived in the best of lights. Usually that’s arrogance, nonsense, cockiness, fanaticism, selfishness, vain, pretentious, whatever.

If you’ve ever avoided celebrating in public but had done so afterwards when on your own, you’d also know what this poem were referencing.

I just came up with a term for it, “introverted bravado”.

I don’t think one need be any of those impressions mentioned that could be wrongly conveyed, necessarily, to do what one needs to do for oneself. Doing it to another person, directly or indirectly like in front of one of their friends or families, is where it crosses the line for me.

Haiku 063

When I’m in Heaven –
I’ll go to Hell to find you –
Just to get even
