We asked the amazing artists of our upcoming staged reading series Poetic Larceny to answer some questions about stealing, beauty, and consequences. Read on for their answers!
Question #1: What is the worst thing you've ever stolen?
I tried stealing second base once...I got caught. Oh, and on my sixth grade basketball team there was this girl who would always hold the ball directly behind her head, so whenever we scrimmaged I always stole the ball from her. Also i try to steal some zzz's whenever I can.
My sense of safety and self in my neighborhood was stolen on a night four years ago when a neighbor forcefully stole my backpack from me half a block away from my apt. The idealism came back quickly, but shadowed with realism...and I still panic and go into survival mode when someone walks directly behind me for longer than necessary.
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" For me a person may or may not have a pretty face, but it is in knowing them as a person -then I will find them beautiful.
A moment of pure joy to keep in my back pocket.
