Kristen Stewart Wrote a Poem

In the latest Marie Claire, Kristen Stewart shares a poem she wrote after the end of the Twilight saga. She prefaces the reading with, “Oh, my god, it’s so embarrassing. I can’t believe I’m doing this.” But she does it anyway. So you know she secretly wants to show it to everyone.

My Heart Is A Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole

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
My eyes
And I’m drunk on your morsels
And so I look down the line
Your every twitch hand drum salute
Salutes mine …

Not surprisingly, she says her poetry “comes from the same place as her acting.” “Oooooooh,” said everyone with a sudden sense of realization. She went on to explain.

“I like being able to hit on something, like, ‘There it is.’ I don’t want to sound so fucking 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.'”

I feel the same way after writing a pretty good dick joke. I don’t want to sound pretentious either but I’m always like, “Whoa, that’s a good dick joke.”
