# 15

do not agitate

Half-way across the desert already? I should be writing something cheery or motivational but why is my mood so dark?


it is not edvard munch's humanoid in pain
not a wimp's first roller coaster ride.
not when a foot steps on a krait in the grass
nor even a werewolf on a full moon night

but from depths so abysmal so soundless
edvard munch's scream is like a smile.

I love Edvard Munch. I so get this poem.

thanks, jeanne! :)

Munch's "The Scream" is so.. compelling.
