#GloPoWriMo 2018 21 – Pesca una carta


all’inizio del turno
fai in modo di avere
più tempo per altri
progetti che non pensavi
di dover completare

a metà del turno
fai in modo di pensare
a quello che è passato
e a quello che ti rimane
addosso dopo il fatto

alla fine del turno
fai in modo di lasciare
meno tracce di quello
che volevi di quello che
avresti sperato un tempo

il turno in senso orario
non si ferma e in realtà
toccherà di nuovo a te



#GloPoWriMo 2018 15 – Initiative


You do. It is always your choice,
it is, always. Your choice
is not always what you will find again
– aim higher on the next one.

Aim higher on the next one
you do. It is always your choice.
You on.. the path ahead,
when it comes down to it
– not alone, never alone –

is not always what you will find. Again,
be cautious with your actions.
To achieve the goal placed by
be cautious with your actions:
take the first step first
and be ready to, finally
you, do. (It is your choice,
not alone, never alone,
no matter how you walk it,
it is always your choice.)

But have heart in what
to achieve. The goal placed by
stride in time, with rising force:
aim higher, on the next one
aim higher on. The next one
is not always what you will. Find again

the voice telling you how
it is always your choice.

NaPoWriMo / GloPoWriMo 2016 5-14: Travel Haikus

  1. Recarsi al gate
    numéro quarante-trois.
    Have a good flight, sir.
  2. Chicago. Drive, drive,
    drive, Indiana, drive, pause,
    drive, drive, Kentucky.
  3. America runs
    on coffee, sugar, and size.
    Look up, take in, gulp.
  4. Fast! Fast food, fast lane,
    fast track, fast! Quick! Get to the
    next thing, do it fast!
  5. Americana,
    Ethiopian, pizza,
    Mexican. Omnom.
  6. Pit stop: goldfish in
    a bag, flag cake mix,
    chilli nut cookie.
  7. Where Batman began,
    and Transformers wreaked havoc,
    I rise, high, and soar.
  8. Fellow robot fan,
    father, driver, artist, host.
    Good human, and friend.
  9. Travel bugs should not
    bite while on ten hour flights.
    *Cough* blurgh *passes out*
  10. It may be cheating
    but horizontal poems
    are all I could do.


NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 18 – Sith Happens


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.)

NaPoWriMo Day 29 – Captions


You are not our readers
but you need
to know this.
We need more stories
we need different stories
a healthy and vital evolution.

If we can change perceptions
relate to and see each other
when we draw pictures,
sometimes teach others
the community it represents.
Keep our pencils moving
trying to be an ally.

You are not our readers.
The true faces, true fans
“I would not–
I didn’t just–
had no idea–“,
have become obscure
now in the minority.

You’ve probably met
the Pretty Deadly
voracious reader
you’ve probably met
people that
recognize that
conversations like this
have finally started to build
people that
reject fandom gatekeeping.

It does not matter
where we’re reading it from
that doesn’t matter much
to comics as a whole
to many who work
to stand in solidarity
make the world a better place.

You are not our readers
but we
we are comics.

NaPoWriMo Day 18 – A True Fan


You must observe the figure
take in the curvature
the refraction of light on chrome
glint of flash on tinted plastic.

You must touch the figure
insinuate your fingers beneath
panels, permeate with life
the lifeless textured plastic.

You must lick the figure
savour the sweetness of the cracks
and edges of bittersweet ratchets
and salt tears of joy and plastic.

Then, and only then
you will become what I have been.
Then, and only then
you will be.. a true fan.

Prompted by yesterday’s NaPoWriMo.net suggestion, and inspired by something that a weird fan said once, on a discussion board. Weird fans are pretty weird.
