a firey email exchange between me and a "poet." m  Reply with quote  

Here's the story.
This girl I don't know at all sent me a poem/rap. Like most people who send me their poem/raps she thought she deserved an in depth critique...she probably expected one that consisted of praise.

Needless to say, I didn't respond with praise. I let her know that most of her material didn't make sense to me. It didn't speak to me. It was actually very uninformative. the kind of stuff you would write in your diary about specifics without mentioning the specifics...just alluding to them while saying "I will never forgive him/her for what he/she has done with that thing that is so important because of what I believed in when I was at that place."

heh...anyway...here's her response followed by the rest of the emails (apparently she didn't really like my "mom" talk either):


FROM "Kim brock" <xdorkedgex@hotmail.com>

I think there may have been a bit of confusion here. i wrote it while i was stoned, obviously for a purpose...the points enhanced were there subconciously, shown throughout the writing but at the end i didnt care to specify because i already felt better than i did when i started. i dont know if you understand, but if its a waste of yer time, i'd either not want to know about it or maybe have you clarify a little. your words are genius and you sir, are an inspiration, my intentions were not to waste yer time, sage-is!-Kim





FROM "SAGE FRANCIS" <sagefrancis@hotmail.com>
-Kim
if you wrote while you were stoned and you can't remember something like that then... I have no choice but to think it was a waste of time to read it.

I dont think im going to use the energy to respond to that exept to simply tell you i dont think youre very nice, and now when i listen to yer music i want to turn it off before it ends how much substance does that have? -kim

You asked for my opinion and it is my honest opinion that you didn't offer enough to the reader. That's fine if it works for you...keep it to yourself. It's called a journal. not something you need to present to anyone else. just because you wrote something while you were under the influence of an outside substance doesn't mean you tapped into anything special. Especially when I can recognize that some of the writing is lacking substance and you have no explanations for the questions I asked. That's poor.
peace,
sage

Congratulations DAD!
You are officially a complete A-HOLE,
and for all i know, anything "good" thats comes out of my speakers titled "sage francis" is written by a completely different person...someone a little more, open-minded, down to earth...maybe even shows a little bit of appreciation for having a fucking fan. well, wanker i'll know what to say next time someone asks me if i know who sage francis is..i'll say "gimme yer email address...i'll show you". you are a horrible icon as far as im concerned, and i know yer not concerned, but since you wanted to attempt to make me look or feel stupid, i thought i'd give ya a little notey back....you know, collaborate. i love you, but you should pay yer child support. -Daughter

Hahahahaha... I think it's great that a person can't take one bit of criticism. Of course they were looking for praise, and pissed they didn't get any.
