Off the Rail Poetry
Starting September 2016 Meg began writing short poems on her 20 minute commute to and from work. Every poem she would write in that 20 minute span then leave it be, there was a sense of freedom to be felt when confining this creative process to the just the 20 minute span. The freedom to fail allowed Meg to create something in a short period of time and not obsess over it for hours like most of her other design work.
Anyone who knows Meg, knows I love avocados. The avocado tattoo on her arm is a dead giveaway. This set of poems was inspired by a friend who is expecting a child. Much like how parents obsess over their children, Meg obsesses over avocados. It didn't take long for her to start finding silly similarities between babies and avocados and used those as her muse for the short poems. The book hopes to lift the spirits of overly exhausted new parents and assure them that like all good things, life is messy, just like guacamole!
