Introduction to Myself
Why do I choose this form of art?
Why not depict my emotions in.
drawings or beautiful paintings full of
Why not screech my moods out with a song, or beep-bop a tune on a horn?
Because I can draw subconsciously
but the moment I try,
my artwork turns into a picture of
sticks and scribbles
drawn by a two-year old
and I break down with frustration.
Because if I screech out my moods
I sound like just that:
a screeching banshee
or the seagull from
The Little Mermaid.
And there are too many songs and
at the same time not enough
to tell my moods.
On top of that, I am a drummer.
I am loud and obnoxious
and make no sense unless you listen closely or you know how
and no one does.
I choose words because
they make people feel.
Music hides the original meaning
or gives a new one.
Visual art can be depicted as
so many things.
But words on paper
flat out tell you what they mean
and how they want you to feel
and that’s what I’m here to do.
