Kristen Stewart is adding poet to her resume, but is this poem published in the March issue of Marie Claire magazine about her on-again, off-again beau Robert Pattinson?
"Oh, my God, it's so embarrassing. I can't believe I'm doing this," 23-year-old Twilight star said before reading her writing aloud to Marie Claire's Karl Taro Greenfeld. "I like being able to hit on something, like, 'There it is.' I don't want to sound so f**king utterly pretentious ...but after I write something, I go, 'Holy f**k, that's crazy.' It's the same thing with acting: If I do a good scene, I'm always like, 'Whoa, that's really dope.'"
Here is Stewart's poem, My Heart Is A Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole, in its entirety:
I reared digital moonlight
You read its clock, scrawled neon across that black
Kismetly … ubiquitously crest fallen
Thrown down to strafe your foothills
…I'll suck the bones pretty.
Your nature perforated the abrasive organ pumps
Spray painted everything known to man,
Stream rushed through and all out into
Something Whilst the crackling stare down sun snuck
Through our windows boarded up
He hit your flint face and it sparked.
And I bellowed and you parked
We reached Marfa.
One honest day up on this freedom pole
Devils not done digging
He's speaking in tongues all along the pan handle
And this pining erosion is getting dust in
And I'm drunk on your morsels
And so I look down the line
Your every twitch hand drum salute
Salutes mine …
What do you think of the poem?
