Read Like Jess?

a Gilmore girls poem

Read Like Jess?

I feel so Jess Mariano,
folding back the book cover,
leaning over for a note i want to pen in the margins.
The note is a smiley face.
I don’t feel like Jess Mariano anymore
Or do I?

 

Park Bench Person

a poem

Park Bench Person

I’m starting to think
that park benches
are the best, most creative places in the world.
Not just a place, but a way to be.
I’m a Park Bench Person
now.

 

New York Time

another Gilmore girls poem

New York Time

If transportation were like Gossip Girl
I’d be in Brooklyn by now
But it’s not
It’s like Gilmore girls,
Where buses get delayed
On graduation day
No bail
Even for Rory Gilmore,
trapped in a poetic fantasy:
books on benches,
hot dog stands.
