TGAP 3 Week 31 submitted October 30, 2011 Artwork by fellow geek Gina Martin.

We suddenly find ourselves,
The X, sandwiched between slices
Of booming babies and me, me,
Me; it’s all about me. We fumble
With our own latchkeys chained loosely
Around our young necks – dolled
Out by parents with key
Parties of their own.
We escaped the dim
Of Disney Princess pressed
Identity. Trusted John Hughes
To chronicle our youth instead.
We could have had a prophet
In Kurt Cobain, but he found
His gun too soon. Now, he’s dead.
So, shovel your blind promises, this October
Snow, over our heads and give us
Time to lace up our Doc Martens
Before we plough in to help you
Clean up this mess.

This is my submission Week 31 of the TwinGeekz Artz Project. The art work is by fellow Geek  Gina Martin.

TwinGeekz is a loose affiliation of loose affiliates in New Hampshire who began the TwinGeekz Artz Project challenge in May of 2005; the task was for each of the original seven participants to produce and submit a piece of art every week for one year.  Every artist succeeded in completing their 52 pieces of art, and thus the TGAP theory was proven: “all creativity needs is a deadline”. 

We grew each of the three years that the project continued. It’s time to bring it back.  Join us?
