Hressó – Saturday

 
Hressó – Saturday
 

To save myself and the reader precious time in our short, fleeting lives, I have decided to forego the standard procedure of taking an account of a nihilistic drinking binge set to live music and dressing it up with florid prose in an attempt to make it look like a life-changing experience. Instead comes a mind-blowing reading experience unlike anything you’ve seen since however long ago it was you were in second grade, and one I find more in keeping with the maturity generally on display during Iceland Airwaves: six so-called ‘diamond poems,’ where I have taken each musician and farted out a short poem about their performance, using the following format:
NOUN
ADJECTIVE ADJECTIVE
VERB VERB VERB
ADJECTIVE ADJECTIVE
NOUN
I won’t insult you or myself by deeming it necessary to explain further, so I’ll let the poetry do the talking from now on:

Music lessons
Commonplace, unimaginative
Confesses, whines, jams
