The first time I started a blog it was called Lonely Throne, and I was going to post my poetry on it. The title refers to a poem I wrote in college:
"...perhaps we would leave the lonely thrones
of our computers and lay in the warm grass,
holding each other’s hands as if we’d never
felt flesh on ours before."
How do you like my scathing inditement of the internet age? I must have been overcome with the irony of writing a blog inspired by this line, because I posted exactly twice.
But the duality I created in the poem doesn't really exist.
