    The text is quite faint. Hard to read.

    Good topic though. I always had an affinity to poetry because I grew up with REM as my favourite band. Michael Stipe’s abstract, poetic imagery stayed with me always, and thus drove me to poems, and the outskirts of the mainstream. I was just listening to Pearl Jam’s “Thumbing my Way,” the other day and have always loved those lyrics.
    “I can’t see what’s next, from this lonely overpass
    Hang my head and count my steps, as another car goes past
    All the rusted signs we ignore throughout our lives
    Choosing the shiny ones instead
    I turned my back, now there’s no turning back
    No matter how cold the winter, there’s a springtime ahead
    I smile, but who am i kidding?
    I’m just walking the miles, every once in a while i’ll get a ride
    I’m thumbing my way back to heaven”
