Streaking

We all go about streaking,
Trailing lines behind,
Our motions streaming
Byproducts of synergy,
Highlighting iotas
Of personal histories,
Unraveling bits
Of ourselves,
Leaving lines
On lover’s lips,
Braiding bands
Between brothers,
Scraping slashes
On strangers’ souls,
At times, cords
Crisscrossing,
We go about streaking,
Trailing lines behind,
Invisible legacies
Captured on film.

    Great photo and poem! Love how you got that effect too on the poem itself. When I read your title, I must admit I was a little curious as I remembered streaking as running through the streets in the mude 😉

    Ah man…awesome formatting! So hard to do that on here!!! I remember when I had an old type writer…would love to have one of them guys again. Great poem too by the way 😀

      My typewriter has been in the attic for almost ever but I refuse to give up on it! But if you like to do this shifting, it is quite easy. Here is the code to put in the text box right before the words you want to shift (just play around to change the 75 to a number you want until you like the shift). I left out the greater than and less than signs, which belong on each end, because if I put them in now, you wouldn’t see the code, just the shift. Thanks Belinda!
