the travelin’ man
let’s twist again
will you love
me tomorrow

please mister
I don’t want to cry
without you
I fall to pieces


Day 57 of 100 of an energizing challenge that combines my love for music and my desire that some day I will write yet again. The poem above is a collage of song titles that topped the charts during in the year 1961 when Yuri Gagarin became the first human to reach space! I tried to imagine how incredibly excited and terrified he must have felt but always come to conclusion that it’s i possible to imagine something that seemed pretty much impossible for that time and for many of us even today… Did I mention I’m a big space nerd yet?

My revitalizing goal is to create one “collage poem” every day for 100 consecutive days. Despite the insane heat wave I am powering forward. I fear no more…

Los Angeles, 2011
