Calling all caffeinated college students/Buffy fans - help a girl out!

quintessentialist:

I’m writing a thesis paper on how human fears manifest in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (the show, not the movie). Ideas, thoughts, and contributions would be most helpful!

Pweese?

@prettyblunt: Both.

A Poem About Weed by Jackie Hill

Trees by Jack Kerouac

But a tree has 
a long suffering shapeIs 
spread in half 
by 2 limbed fate 
Rises from gray rain 
pavements 
To traffic in the bleak 
brown air 
Of cities radar television 
nameless dumb &numb mis connicumb 
Throwing twigs the 
color of ink To white souled 
heaven, with 
A reality of its own uses

In a Station of the Metro by Ezra Pound

The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
petals on a wet, black bough.

Stuck In The Grey Area: If famous poets wrote zombie haiku by Ryan Mecum

tabby-z:

Zombie Haiku by Dylan Thomas
Do not go gentle
into that zombie plagued night.
And take the shotgun.

Zombie Haiku by Sylvia Plath
From head to black shoe,
daddy, I had to eat you
because I’m starving.

Zombie Haiku by Robert Frost
Two lobes in the skull.
I eat the bloodier one –
not much…

Casablanca by Elizabeth Bishop

Love’s the boy stood on the burning deck
trying to recite `The boy stood on
the burning deck.’ Love’s the son
stood stammering elocution
while the poor ship in flames went down.

Love’s the obstinate boy, the ship,
even the swimming sailors, who
would like a schoolroom platform, too,
or an excuse to stay
on deck. And love’s the burning boy.
