    dotsOverused Outlet dots
    -------------------------------------------



    Flowing current,
    Soon to bring me happiness,
    Heat or entertainment,
    Comes through two tall, thin men
    With hands towards the heavens,
    Screaming at each other;
    How each is tired of living,
    In that small igloo.

    Or is it three disapproving faces,
    Not excited to have metal prongs,
    Shoved through their eyes,
    And down their throats.

    Or two bright windows,
    Above a welcoming door,
    On the best block of the neighborhood,
    Each house eerily similar.

    All of this,
    On the canvas,
    That is my only outlet.

      A superbly written poem, with clarity, imagery and cohesiveness.

    Yes, we all need an outlet to expand and contract our feelings and emotions.

    After reading this great piece, I wonder, did I have a philosophical discussion with Socrates?

    Poem rings with deep meaning and solid truth for humanity.

    God bless and keep the faith.

    This is really neat. (the more archaic form of neat that means cool, not tidy). In fact I think it could be tidier, tighter. Go right to the heart of it.

    Flowing current
    Happiness [comes] or [is ushered in by] or
    [conducted by]
    two tall, thin men
    With hands towards the heavens,
    Screaming at each other;
    How each is tired of living,
    In that small igloo.

    Three faces,
    Disapproving
    of [how I get a charge out of]
    metal prongs,
    Shoved through their eyes,
    And down their throats.

    Play up electricity-related words like charge, conducted, etc that can give you more than one meaning.

    Or two bright windows,
    Above a welcoming door,
    On the best block of the neighborhood,
    Each house eerily similar.

    I think I would say “eerily the same” as they are more than just similar.

    All of this,
    On the canvas,
    That is my only outlet

    How about a slight twist to these words, “all of” I think is not necessary…and I was thinking a play on the reversal of “my only”, or “only my” but perhaps it would be more effective to leave “only” out to say:

    This is the canvas
    That is my outlet.

    I really enjoyed your write, very unusual and imaginative work and I hope you don't mind my tinkering with it.
    (I’ve always thought of them as little faces, so will carry your “disapproving” image away with me.)

      i really like this piece, and i can really relate actually. I love those times when you can stare at anything and see only poetry or what you can relate it to in your own words. The other day I was looking through a yearbook and i began writing things about time, changes, the fragility of the world..and so on.

    But I really liked how you parralleled a simple outlet with so much, it really leaves a lot to thought. keep up the great work:)

      I always wished I was one of those writers who could look at something and see a thousand things staring back. I seem to always see less than what the item actually is. You are one of those writers. I have no critisism..not that I generally do for anyone. It was refreshing.

      This has alot of imagry, which is really nice. I like how you ended it:

    All of this,
    On the canvas,
    That is my only outlet.

    It makes it the reader think of an artist, yet obviously you write poetry, which is a form of art many do not reconize.

      Wow, i really like your writing style, especially the visuals. This was fun to read, its good to see something that is not commenly written on... i can see the vision of a row of perfect houses in a neighborhood, my favorite part is definetly:
    Or is it three disapproving faces,
    Not excited to have metal prongs,
    Shoved through their eyes,
    And down their throats.
    i could see this becoming a longer piece, but it is great the way it is too

    that would be uncomfortable O_o
