Lobotomy lullaby

Lobotomy lullaby

A concrete poem of a cracked cranium, just in time for Halloween! This is an old haunt from the archives that I touched up. I hope you enjoy! Have a safe and happy Halloween 🙂

    • Thank you, my friend! Concrete poems are so fun to sculpt. This is by far the hardest one I’ve done…although my mind always raises the bar on me each time. Just as Nature adapts to survive through random mutations, my poems shape themselves to fit the context of their environment. I find it very ironic that words themselves never change, yet their arrangement is constantly in a state of flux. I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween 🙂

    • Thank you, my friend! This concrete poem was by far the hardest to sculpt, but it was also the most enjoyable to dream up. I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween 🙂

    Wow!! Brainy and masticating!! Fab. LOL

    • Thank you, Brenda! So glad you enjoyed it! Did you dress up for Halloween, indulge your sweet tooth or carve pumpkins? Mine was very relaxing. We didn’t have any Trick-or-Treaters show up, which surprised me! Oh well, at least we got to hear and see an owl across the street (first time, of all nights, was it a coincidence or not?). Hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend 🙂

        We had a great Halloween and we did all those things, although I did not dress up this year. I wore a russet sweater and called myself a pumpkin, but I didn’t have the energy for an actually costume. It was also quite warm here, which made wearing a big heavy cape not ideal. The neighborhood kids visited us, but not many kids who were strangers. You have a wonderful weekend, too! An owl! How cool! Brenda

  3. You had to know this would crack me up! Oh, was I already cracked? My bad.
    Happy Halloween!

    • Thank you, Kathryn! You are too funny, my friend 🙂 We’re all a little ripe in the head & insane in the membrane. Hope you have a relaxing weekend!
      Tyler 🙂

    This is very very good! Concrete poems are hard, much less when they’re theme based.

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! So glad you enjoyed my shape poem 🙂 This my favorite style of poetry….very challenging, but also fun and rewarding! I hope you have a wonderful week 🙂
