The internet connects culture. We used to not know how to act and took cues from proximal role models or distant stars. Now we take cues from the internet or those who are and we become one person. Everybody wants to talk about the daily melees and brawls nobody wants to talk about Super Smash Bros. and how when it came out the internet wasn’t really a thing so people had to learn to play on their own and each person you faced was a new experience but now everyone learns the best strategies from the internet and pick between only a few different characters.
I'm covered from head to toe in resin, acrylics and epoxy, Some pulverized rocks my son gathered from the Chattooga River, Now reduced to a burnt ember dust. I added silicone sludge and a little baking powder as well, And once mixed, this dicey concoction is beautifully toxic, So I waft the air and inhale it.
Painting a colorful sunset is too easy, I prefer black and white, So with a wooden board the size of a door, I get to work with my rubber sledgehammer, blowtorch A gallon of poison and flammable spray.
The passers by have seen this look in eyes, From The Shining or possibly their preachers, You know, the same look that's a sight to behold.
Slamming the hammer down with brute force And purposed abandonment, I paint my sunset and wrangle the stars later. A shower won't do me justice>

Ten letters assigned by someone who chose them randomly. First of each line, at least 5 words per line. Not great but I can say "I tried." And thanks for playing along, Verlie
