TW : It’s important to mention that these poems deal w. peoples experiences, including drug addiction, over-doses, self-harm, paranoia, & suicide (both ideation + attempts).

WHY GIVE AN AUDIENCE YOUR SCRIBBLES & SCRAPES INSTEAD OF WHAT’S IN STUDIO?

The emotional aspects that came w. departing from Tucson to bumble around Mexico, & then the return up to the desert, is for writings not yet shared.

What’s more immediate is that, thru those stumbles & processes, I loosely began to maintain a project I’d nearly abandoned after it began in January; “Write The Poem, Record, Upload,” a series of poems written, recorded without edits, & uploaded to a FB album that compiles the series.

WHAT’S YOUR INTENT?

Thru recording & uploading videos of unedited poems, & operating within that honest & vulnerable spontaneity, I’m working to create a practice of humility that’s other than self-loathing. In sharing, I hope someone else gets something from these, but the main cycle’s intent is to let go of needing your validation, trust my own creative drive, & express compassion to the parts of myself I hate.

I give hallucinated readers (you) so much power that I’m wandering strung-out editing the midnight stroll. It’s made me afraid to share my poems online, & closes me in w. egotistical giggles of self-criticisms. That’s self-righteous, & exhausting.

The (growing) series can be browsed in its FB photo album, or thru the links/videos listed below in-order of their posting :

TABLE OF CONTENTS

NOTE : Some of these link to FB as the content transfers over to this site. It’ll be noted next to the title if you’ll be leaving jeremiahwalton.com for FB.

Receptive, critical, & emotional reactions are appreciated, either here, or on FB. So is sharing. I’m pretty awkward w. self-promotion, & have no idea what I’m doing.
