This poem is my attempt to record slowed time. I have these moments where I almost will clock to slow its movement, trying to reconcile the desire that many White Americans have to go back to an earlier era that wasn't better, only nostalgic and problematic. #UndiscoveredPoetry

I've never really been very good at form and meter and rhyme. Oftentimes, I feel that the constraints are too much, so I opt for free-verse; however, with this poem, I wanted to explore the creativity within a balled-up sonnet. #UndiscovedPoetry

I am playing around with verb tense here. Most moments are impossible to capture in words during. I find myself running to grab a pen to write down my thoughts. But afterward, where do you place the reader? In the reflective aftermath or in the painful present? Let me know your thoughts! #UndiscoveredPoetry

I am experimenting here with both prose poetry and verb tense. I wrote this poem after the incident, but the writing felt like one continuous moment with the crash and the whiskey and listening to Dylan Thomas. I have a feeling that I will be returning to this poem often in order to interpret its meaning. Perhaps there is no meaning, but after re-reading the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, I feel a pull to listening to the universe to see if it is conspiring for me to achieve something. #UndiscoveredPoetry
