Show Poem: Just one conversation Can change the whole Mood of your poem… Saturday. May 30 / Warrensburg, MO / The Bay #Schwervonpoetry

UntitledI wallow just like
the rest of the wet piglets
Slipping and sloshing
Like a virgin trout in love
At the hatchery 

The mud
never touches my exquisite
cloven hooves 

On very little sleep
I eat badly 

all around
The entire city cheers
For what they get
With a lot of hard work
And very little effort 

Bombs exploding
One after another
Rapid succession
Compressed, quantized and equalized

And the fans go wild

Just one conversation
Can change the whole
Mood of your poem 

Pyro city in a water world
That’s my soul up there
Sun spots on the backs
Of our hands
More fireworks
Less drunken fish fight

Let’s break a leg on it

We’ll make the stars dance
Like they dance on
Dancing with the stars

Major Matt show poem 10 – 2 -13

(Every live Major Matt Mason USA show I write an original poem, that day, to be read at the show.)

10 Good Things about Death
01. Crying is allowed.
02. It leaves an empty hole in your life but then you learn that you still have all your memories as a funnel for filling that hole with more amazing stuff.
03. It changes things.
04. It brings people together
05. It shows you what is really important.
06. It makes you realize that it has very little to do with Black Metal and Horror films.
07. It helps you learn the pointlessness of guilt.
08. It makes you think about how everyone, regardless of who they are or what they believe, at least for a moment, feels the same ,when something they love dies.
09. It shows you what love is for.
10. It teaches you that living is not just breathing. When a heart stops beating  love can grow like fire to comfort those in mourning.
