#VerseThursday

Thanks to @Mayana for introducing me to this poem (and highlighting the accessibility issues with poem formatting!)

I love the poem but I feel like it takes such a turn I can't even quote a bit without giving you the wrong idea about it.

The poet seems to use they/them pronouns too, which is cool!

#VerseThursday An excerpt from I Am the Rage by Martina Green McGowan, MD

I am the rage, rolling just beneath the surface
I am the dream deferred
Again
I am the promised kneaded and repeated
But never kept
I am the air between light and dark
Fueling flames that burn,
but can neither be consumed
nor satisfy its own abiding hunger

I am the glowing embers you continue to poke and prod
with meanness
That bubbles over onto streets
I am the ravenous appetite to destroy
Something
Anything

1999 Movie Draft Chalk Talk 

Drama is usually the deepest category, so I'm not uber-concerned about, like, Eyes Wide Shut or whatever going early; I think from here the play is to get a good Blockbuster since The Matrix is off the board and the quality dips pretty fast. Sixth Sense, maybe? That feels like I'm overvaluing it just a hair.

1999 Movie Draft Chalk Talk 

I think third off the board is Toy Story 2. Sequels et al. are really, really bad this year, so picking hit here basically forces some into taking, best case scenario, Episode 1 or The World Is Not Enough. It's an agressive early play.

1999 Movie Draft Chalk Talk 

So The Matrix and Fight Club are going to be the first two movies off the board. I don't know in what order, but looking at the field, these two are head and shoulders above pretty much everything else in terms of value. Matrix should be taken in Blockbuster, and Fight Club in Drama.

So the 1999 Movie Draft is on Friday and this is going to be a thread (which I will CW and make unlisted lmao) where I'm going to run my mock draft

Watching movies is a competition and Letterboxd is the scoreboard

Gosling can play sweet and sensitive, sure, but he *excels* at tomfoolery
