The Wasteland

Planet Earth is dead.
The Biospheres are pristine,
bright recollections.

He breaks ships for cash
but has never flown above
the smog and rusting.

They revolve like moons
with a hundred white faces.
Billions look up.


The Garden of Eden

"Let's feed the Earthlings,"
cries a human. She wonders
at speciation.

Extinct flowers bloom.
The day cycle ends and she
watches the dome split.

The constellations
were renamed by the Founders.
She finds Orion.


The Dark Star

He collects spare parts,
amasses a ship in months,
then learns to pilot.

"There's no need for a
license to kill, kill, kill, kill,
the unfortunate."

She sees him coming,
but says nothing. The glass
erupts to soundless.


Oblivion

They watch from the ground
and color televisions.
Some cheer. Some sicken.

"And measures have been
taken to ensure no more
Spheres will be damaged."

The borders tighten.
Someone starves in Coal City.
Planet Earth is dead.
scifaikus! i decided to try my hand at it!

Im really impressed at how much story was told in so few words. The whole history of the world unfolded for me when I read it, and its only what, 20 or so lines long? Fabulous.

It's always open season with no fee for attacking the differentfromus/me.



Trigonometry has proven to be nearly the most useful to me part of mathematics, even spherical trigonometry. Simple algebra accounts for the rest.

Quadratic equations must be the most useless thing ever invented. A dull toy.

Congrats on the DLD! 

What I really like about this is how it's like a sci fi epic distilled into such few words. Hooray for brevity!

It is not rhymeful enough! But i like its content that need to be potentially improved upon, when i read it i feel it is blank and not rhyme and connecting to each other. It is good though!
Final Verdict: 7.4/10

But it is rhyme which making the poetry sounds more living and interesting! It is the soul of poetry .But your poetry has a very good idea and i like it

that is an opinion. i think rhyming poetry usually sounds pretty forced and dull. but we're allowed to disagree!

Your choice then, why don't you check poetic works? I hope we can find a common idea between us

i read plenty of poetry, haha. free verse (and blank verse, non-rhyming forms) are definitely my favorite.

How far did you go with it?

I am, too, but I'm a horrible student. :P And hate doing problems that take longer than about 4 steps.

Also who the hell came up with the problems that are like "Question 1: a) Find the equation of the parabola. b) graph it c) What's the focus? d) What is the inverse? e) Go fuck yourself."

i'm studying to be a calculus teacher! 

i was not a very good student b/c i figured that i could actually skip most of my classes and still pass if i took the tests. then i was a much better student.

ahahahahaha i disliked trig. it wasn't hard but god it felt pointless.

I think I remember you telling me this now. *is sheepish* oops.

XD That sounds familiar. Did you do the thing where you calculate how good of a grade you have to get on assignments in order to make an A?

Noooo don't tell me that. That's what I'm taking next semester.

hahaha i talk to so many people on here ;P i don't blame you for not remembering!

ahahahahaha there's a little bit of me in everything i write but no, i really didn't have to. and i didn't do that well until after my sophomore year. then i got A's.

it's not hard at all. you'll just be bored. i can't lie to you.
