Happy National Poetry Month! This month on Incidental Comics I’ll be referencing (both directly and indirectly) poems that have inspired my work. You can order a poster at my shop.
"Die Slowly" by Martha Medeiros (apocryphally attributed to Pablo Neruda)
"How to Wake a Sleepwalker" by Edward Lueders (from Zero Makes Me Hungry: A Collection of Poems for Today)
(Disclaimer: This comic is in no way meant to comment on clinical depression or any other mental illness. Pharmaceutical treatment is often absolutely necessary in the treatment of such conditions. In this comic I’m addressing the need to feel exceedingly happy in the face of the “mild dissatisfaction” of day to day life.) Incidental Comics prints are available at my shop.
