Random fact alert: Kristen Stewart is a poet. The actress recently confessed in an interview with Marie Claire that in between acting and modeling gigs, she fancies eloquently stringing words together in the form of poetry. I find this both surprising and totally not surprising all at once.
However, what does come as somewhat of a shock is that Stewart actually shared one of her poems with that magazine. The actress apparently wrote this piece shortly after the Twilight series wrapped while driving through Texas with a friend. It's entitled, "My Heart Is a Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole." Check it out:
I reared digital moonlight
You read its clock, scrawled neon across that black
Kismetly ... ubiquitously crest fallen
Thrown down to strafe your foothills
... I’ll suck the bones pretty.
Your nature perforated the abrasive organ pumps
Spray painted everything known to man,
Stream rushed through and all out into
Something Whilst the crackling stare down sun snuck
Through our windows boarded up
He hit your flint face and it sparked.
And I bellowed and you parked
We reached Marfa.
One honest day up on this freedom pole
Devils not done digging
He’s speaking in tongues all along the pan handle
And this pining erosion is getting dust in
And I’m drunk on your morsels
And so I look down the line
Your every twitch hand drum salute
Salutes mine ...
Before reading her poem aloud to the interviewer, Stewart said, "Oh, my God, it’s so embarrassing. I can’t believe I’m doing this. I don’t want to sound so f—ng utterly pretentious ... but after I write something, I go, 'Holy f—, that’s crazy.' It’s the same thing with acting: If I do a good scene, I’m always like, 'Whoa, that’s really dope.'"
I, personally, think it was awesome of Kristen Stewart to share her poetry. That's no easy feat. Or maybe in language she'll better understand: Holy f—, that's really dope.
What do you think of Kristen's poetry?
