(This is a poem I wrote for a course at university, the assignment having been to write a poem about ourselves.)
Tip several decades of life into a baking pan,
Put in 250 grams of passion for writing prose and poetry,
A pinch of inclination towards photography,
And a deciliter of interest in design, branding and film editing.
Add two level teaspoonfuls of interest in quantum mechanics
And a broad musical taste with a preference for rock.
Don’t forget tolerance, anarchism and the wish to travel the world,
Then bake it for nine months at 37 degrees and serve it to the world.
