Just Be a Little Bit Exciting – March 2011

Just Be a Little Bit Exciting

do something original
say something
not found in a song
or read –
on the back of a cereal packet
have more depth
even more colour
not just black and white
say something funny
stand up and even out –
in a loose crowd
let go of magnolia shards
be controversial
dress in a way that flatters you
not in a way that suggests –
it does not matter to you
confront the world
stop hiding –
for god’s sake
just be a little bit exciting
