Poetic Aesthetic


It would be
so poetic
if I died
distracted
by a rear view aesthetic
just staring
at the sky.

 

‘Poetic Aesthetic’ is a poem from a collection of works I found within my various notebooks and hard drives. Some verses may be accompanied by sketches and others by much more.

This short poem is about getting caught up in the past. It came to me while I was driving down the on overpass as I caught the sunset in my rearview mirror. I got so caught up in the aesthetic of the sky that I forgot I was in the middle of traffic.

Thank you for your time.
