A STRANGE TOM HANKS SLAM POEM I WROTE WHEN I WAS SIXTEEN

“A STRANGE TOM HANKS SLAM POEM I WROTE WHEN I WAS SIXTEEN” by Emily Millard Murphy, featured in EyeCandy’s 2018 issue, Vol. 28.

The poem reads:

open spots,
new members
welcome.


we have enticing
conversations
about variability,
conundrums,
friendship,
freedom,
life.


we watch,
no.
absorb
movies.
memorize lines.
act out
scenes.


you must have
previous knowledge
to join;
what is life like?
awards won?
last role?
birthday?
you’re in.


but please
join the club.
play your part
as best as you can.


but it is unlikely
you’ll be as good as
Tom Hanks
