Infantile, yet valid

Posted to Poetry




In fact, the poem (they're song lyrics really) affected you just the way I hoped. This is sort of a reflection on my own moments of "self-righteous nihilism" as I called them in an earlier response. And I'm constantly dueling between the cynic in me and the snetimentalist in me. Consequently, I come across as a melodrammatic pseudo-iconoclast...which is fine with me. Just trying to embrace who I am in all its disconnectedness and, well...let's face it....silliness.
