Kristen Stewart Drops Some Verse in Marie Claire
Channeling the joy, frustration and craziness that makes up her life, Kristen Stewart has become quite the poet in her spare time.
The “Snow White and the Huntsman” actress shared one of her poems with Marie Claire magazine, and it’s really not half-bad.
In “My Heart is a Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole,” Stewart writes:
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 …
As for the source of her poetic inspiration, Kristen told Marie Claire, "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.'"
And despite all of her artistic and financial success, Stewart still has one major regret- "The biggest struggle I've ever had has been about not going to school and working instead. I was worried about turning down specific individual experiences. Like each movie was, 'F**k, I have to do that movie.' I just did a movie with Tim Blake Nelson [Anesthesia, which recently wrapped], and he is brilliant. If I were as smart as he is, I could have the most killer conversation with anyone because I know I have it in me. I just don't have the tools necessarily as well-developed as he does. I play this character who is getting her master's degree in philosophy at Columbia, and I think I'm smart, but I'm definitely not book smart in that way."
