Kristen Stewart Writes Poetry That Will Make Your Gums Ache
Kristen Stewart writes poetry, y’all. In fact, she’s very proud of that poetry. So proud, in fact, that she read a poem aloud to Marie Claire and allowed them to publish it. The poem below was written about a year ago, while Stewart was on a long car trip with a friend.
She is both embarrassed, and really f*cking proud of this poem, as she relays to Marie Claire:
“Oh, my God, it’s so embarrassing. I can’t believe I’m doing this … I don’t want to sound so fucking 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.’”
Here’s Stewart’s “dope” poem, which includes the word “kismetly.” It also rhymes.
My Heart Is A Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole
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 …
Props, though, for putting herself out there. Seriously.
