Telephone Poles

Posted in Life, Love, Poetry, Writing on April 18, 2007 by geniusadvice

Those towers majestic
Stretching their p a r a ll e l
Fine lines unwinding
Now they’re Hydro Poles
With wire folds and they’re
Connecting faster than sound
Traveling towards you a thousand miles away
Controlling and rejecting
And defecting and ejecting waves into the air

And they’re

It’s been so long and I don’t care who’s wrong
My mind wandered to you lately and why don’t you come pay me a visit,
Since it’s fate that we met
Don’t give reasons to appease me, the teaser
I’m fine, but the visit is too costly for me
And your picture, it’s doing a toll on me

Why do we converse on hanging strings?
You leave me on the rims of defeat
Oh look, the sun’s rising on the east…
And the stars die here
I wish you were here
Wish you were here
Wish you were here
Not I, there

[Please hang up and try again…]


Pet Peeve

Posted in Issues, Text on April 16, 2007 by geniusadvice

You all know I like text, right?
Well now you know.
And for the longest while, I’ve been angry at a friend for posting up, what I thought, was the most ridiculous font that was only unreadable to me, it seemed.

What I see.

Well, apparently, I found out much later that there is nothing actually wrong with the font and it’s because my Mozilla Firefox text size is set to a certain size of font and after it shrinks to a certain, only this font clumps up. (To toggle zoom, Ctrl – + or -.)

What I should see.

See, you do learn something new everyday.

April Showers?

So it’s been a ridiculously long amount of time since I last blogged (about a month and a half) and honestly, nothing much is happening. Well, sure, there’s school, but there’s always school. My birthday came and went, and I still feel older than I should be, just like my last birthday. Life’s short; I’ve almost lived a quarter of my life now. It’s about time I think about how to live the rest.

Final exams are in a week and I haven’t started studying. It’s that end-of-the-school-year feeling where you abandon everything thought of education and go outside to enjoy the sun. Yes, Mr. Sun has reluctantly shown his head here and it’s rather distracting, but I’ll live. On another whim, my muse has come back and I’m spewing out lines faster than I’m thinking. Maybe I’ll post a poem here soon. I’m still wishing I can have a chance to become an English teacher as a back-up plan.

Yeah, that’s all I’ve got.  If you’re bored, visit:
Facebook, anyone?
