Hi! This year (2022), I’ve decided to share a poem on my blog and podcast and read it aloud. It’s all a part of my quest to be brave and apparently the things that I’m scared about still include:

  1. My spoken voice
  2. My raw poems.

Thanks for being here with me and cheering me on, and I hope that you can become braver this year, too!

"Celebrity"

Your life could be hated so much.

Once celebrated, you must know the joy—never.
Sitting by the sky’s vastness,

Listening to the screams

Hitting you. You must remember
To open your arms and tumble to Earth

And see if anyone embraces your bones, ascends;

Sometimes we feel like skeletons.
Ligaments, muscles, neurons barely holding it together.

We make so many into angels, waiting
For the fall. 

Hey, thanks for listening to Carrie Does Poems.

The music you hear is made available through the creative commons and it’s a bit of a shortened track from the fantastic Eric Van der Westen and the track is called “A Feather” and off the album The Crown Lobster Trilogy.
