Tonight’s poem is titled after the Twenty One Pilots song “Car Radio,” as part of my normal Saturday Series–poetry inspired by the titles of all TOP tracks (check out the ARCHIVES HERE). I don’t often speak to the meaning of my verse, but tonight I will admit that I wrote this one exactly 2 minutes ago under the influence of raw emotion. This one’s a true story and an utterly honest depiction of my drive home from work today.
As always, check out the Twenty One Pilots version of “Car Radio” below!
I saw Catching Fire this morning, and though I very much recommend it, I warn that it will ruin your makeup within the first five minutes, and then inspire you to write about crying. Have a good weekend!
Special thank you to Tasha Kaminsky for the title inspiration 🙂

I wrote this one quite some time ago, but since today is Twenty One Pilots titled poetry Saturday, it was time to revisit the filed away emotion. Find all my other TOP titled poems archived HERE and check back every week for a new one 🙂

Devon Broadhurst is a West Yorkshire based poet who was hooked in to the magic of language by her great grandmother, a fellow poet. Later inspired by the surreal style of the poet Caroline Bird, after a trip to the Arvon Foundations Lumb Bank (the home of former poet Laureate Ted Hughes), Devon began capturing life’s gritty moments, her nightmares and emotions – each emotion impressive and different in its own degree – and retelling them within her own surreal framework. This led Devon to study Creative Writing at the University of Huddersfield and pursue her own career as a writer.

Today is day 7 of Heart Week on She’s in Prison. This morning I walked in the St. Louis Congenital Heart Walk in memory of my sister that died from a CHD as well as in honor of friends that have fought and are still fighting for their lives. I felt utterly blessed to volunteer side by side with my family, friends, and an entire community that has been impacted by CHD. Somehow it feels right that this last post is also a Josh Dun Poetry Corner poem because the music of twenty one pilots has touched my heart in a way I can barely describe with a metaphor. Thank you to everyone that has shown their support over the past 7 days!
