Kristen Stewart Debuts Poetry, Reads Poem “My Heart Is A Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole”
Kristen Stewart wrote a poem called “My Heart Is A Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole” while on a road trip through Texas last year.
She shared it with Marie Claire for the magazine’s cover profile of the actress, with the outlet noting that Stewart “often writes intense little verses, words or strings of words, rearranging them in a process she herself doesn’t understand but believes is somehow essential to her sanity.”
Before reciting her work, Stewart was quoted as saying, “Oh, my God, it’s so embarrassing. I can’t believe I’m doing this.”
Check out the full text of her poetry below, and tell us what you think!
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
And I’m drunk on your morsels
And so I look down the line
Your every twitch hand drum salute
