Well my name is Mario but I perfer being called Jossie and I'm a senior at SHS and I would rather staple my lips together than go to school. I'm not afraid to be honest and straight forward. All I ask is not to push my buttons or I will break your buttons.I try to be very creative. I love doing arts and crafts it helps me take out much needed stress. Anyways I write poetry and I've been doing so for 2 yrs. and I will hopefully become a distinguished poet and also specialize in psychology. When I write I work with currents. Everything has a current, and the current I use when I write poetry is the search for past experiences with the men I've had in my life. Well, Pele is the volcano goddess and I thought of like, um, sacrificing some of the boys in my life to her but then I decided that that wasn't really a very good idea. And, the poems are sort of about the way I've stolen fire from the men in my life. And I got tired of doing that 'cause I have my own. But I couldn't see that for a very long time. And now I can respect them without needing to suck their blood. Sometimes it takes an incredible amount of time for me to understand a poem I've written. Because I am so much in it and I can't distance myself from it. Sometimes I don't really understand my poem until I read them others and have their reaction to it. And my newest poems are even more personal. They usually come from a part of me that I don't know, haven't met and won't understand for a couple of years. They know things I don't know myself. I'm a music junkie. I listen to a lot of stuff. Here's a list of what I love to hear. Nine Inch Nails, R.E.M, Michelle Branch, Nirvana, P.J Harvey, Bjork, Evanescence, Garbage, Poe, Rob Zombie, No Doubt, Blondie, Shakira, Jet, Dido, Fiona Apple, Liz Phair, Aaliyah, Jonie Mitchell,FlyLeaf, Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks, Cyndi Lauper, Hole, Pat Benetar, The Flaming Lips, Neurosis, and Tori Amos. I am huge Tori Amos fan. I love her work and she inspires me everyday of my life.
