Writing a Comic Book Poem – Appropriation Part 3

For Appropriation Part 1 and Appropriation Part 2 I utilised experimental and found text. For Appropriation Part 3 I wanted to do something a bit more traditional and wrote a poem about confusion and disorientation. The text is fairly explicit, but as I still wanted to experiment I never used a structured stanza style of iambic pentameters. Here there is still a feeling of free verse and openness. Read the text below and wait for the  Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Appropriation Part 3 blog post to see how the illustrations responded to the text.

Appropriation Part 3

It’s just one of those loose days
Where my elegance is all over me
When that something something
Falls from your dry lips
And you can just eat and eat
And then drop and drop

Appropriation and Repetition
Go and string right through
This unreadable and unfortunate mess
For the act of art and
Trying to kick new life into fashion

But don’t forget the comic
Or even the poem
Both dart to an ending
With small and forgotten meaning
Just go back to page 1 and read the title
And you might find a conclusion
