About Me, About You

April 16th. My 16th poem for NaPoWriMo. Before I get to that, a small announcement.

I finally updated my About page! I haven’t changed that page since I started this blog a year ago. I’ve been meaning to update it for some time and finally got around to it. It is one of many changes to come on Missing the Muse.

One thing I’ve noticed from reading the About pages of many other blogs is that a lot of bloggers don’t like to write their About pages. Writing about yourself makes you vulnerable. It opens yourself up to people whom you don’t know.

Personally, I’m never too sure what I should or should not write about myself. It’s very likely that my About page will undergo more changes in the future. But for now, I’m more or less content with it.

Anyway, today’s poem is about About pages. It is about not knowing what to write and wondering if you’re giving away too much information. On the flip side, it’s also about nosey people who try to pry out more personal information than they should be entitled to.

Check it out. And also don’t forget to check out my new About page!


About Me, About You

Tell me a little about you.
I’ll tell you a little about me.
When we learn about each other,
We can unlock this mystery.

Give us some details.
Tell us your name.
Post up your picture,
And hope it’s not lame.

What are your dreams?
What is your occupation?
What is your blood type?
Do you suffer from constipation?

I don’t mean to get personal,
But do you still wet your bed?
What are your turn-ons?
What is wrong with your head?

Name, rank, and serial number?
Are you allergic to penicillin?
Do you believe there is a God?
Do you listen to Bob Dylan?

What do you dream about?
Do you have any fears?
What is your favorite color?
Cool story, bro. Nobody cares.
