NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 24 – Nothing

Standard

‘The child’s laughter is pure until he first laughs at a clown.’

I never really thought about those words. They were just a little note from the early years, when I was still looking for inspiration. I do remember them though, even now. When I was pure. Before I laughed. Before I smiled. The words make me smile.

you are nothing

I cannot remember the first time. The first sound. The first smile. I was not pure the first time. I knew who I was, but I knew nothing. I was nothing, really. But I was inspired, I was passionate. It filled something. I remember the first time.

you are

So I tried again. Hiding my face. In fear. Anxious, nervous, excited. Facing the truth.
Help rebuild from inside. Bring a smile to their face. Sounds of pure laughter. Again.
And again.

you are the son of man

‘Nothing will come of nothing.’ Another note? Same book I think.
I cannot make myself out of nothing. Be pure.

And so I gather my tools, night after night, and choose my new face.
Night after night, the show must go on. I slide into the crowd, as nothing.
Search for a new one. I am nothing without a face. Nothing. Just a tool.

you are

Before I leave the room, I look in the mirror one more time.

Skin as white as bone, nose as red as blood, lips as blue as a corpse.
High-pitch laughter shrieking in the dark.

you

NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 18 – Sith Happens

Standard

All I hear are the sounds of lightsabers.
The Dark Side is around us,
but we do serve your kind here.

When shit was real
the Sith lived in peace –
only imaginary battles.

N’hésitez pas à dénoncer auprès de l’Empire
do not hesitate to report to the Empire
the range in generations of people
falling in love with the new suit.

How much lost at the hands+
of a Jedi Princess?
There are no words to
ingest, transform, analyze
one of my all time favorites:
pink Chewbacca.

Así se ven los protagonistas
So the protagonists are
also still on a nerd-high
and I must ask all of you:
do or do not?
(There is no try.)
