Poetry

by Chris Thomas

I’ve been writing for a while now, about 5 years at this point. My style for writing has changed dramatically throughout this time, from discovering other poets, life experience, maturity, and simply the world changing into what it is now. I write what revolves around me and try to give genuine, unfiltered commentary in the form of poetry. Some of my biggest influences in my writing are Arthur Rimbaud, Oscar Wilde, Richard Brautigan, and Charles Bukowski. What I do with my poetry for social media purposes, is I add objects, colors, and edit the photo into what fits the theme of the poem. For example, for the poem “exits” I wrote, which is about the dangers of escapism, I included a deck of cards (gambling and money), a crucifix (religion), and an old ad for cigars (escape with substance).
