I’ve been thinking of starting a series called “Behind the Poems” that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago on my Instagram. Growing up with MTV and VH1, I may have been inspired by the Behind the Music series. I plan on discussing inspiration behind my poetry, why I chose their structures and more.
I’ll start with one or two to see how this goes. I’m not sure yet this series will have legs, but I lose nothing in giving it a shot. Let me know if there are any poets out there who would like to participate!
In the meantime, take a look at my other poems here.
One thought on “Behind the Poems”
Oh yeah, this sounds like a solid plan. I grew up in the same era, and have even written some posts about life behind the chair (as a hairdresser). Maybe I was inspired by the same MTV and VH1 influences, though I don’t really recall Behind The Music type of stuff. Anyway, thanks for this post!
