April 1st

I’m building my lucky charm because I lost all my wisdom

The truman show came knocking

Three gleefull medicine men with April fools jokes

Nitrous Oxide turns to Morphine turns to Hydrocodone

Turns to

Turn to my right and see my intra venus drip

Violently accommodating, with a grin

“stop writing poetry about drugs!”

To be quite honest the trip was nothing but amnesia

Lost life, 56 minutes

Nothing to much else

At least they let me take home the makings of a lucky charm




Cleaner Fish and Anteaters

Sell the idea of a cool breeze,

the idea of a foreign friend,

the idea of a tongue

to scoop what ails you

out of the lake

of your desolation.

Snow sifts the dust to the ground,

coddles the pear blossoms.

Below, a fish turns a fin,

and by the mound at your door

an inquiring eye regards you

as you listen to the colony

rustle underneath.

Hi all,

Here’s a website that will host a new prompt every day (possibly for found poetry exercises) for National Poetry Month. I’ll post others as I find them!



Here’s our website!

Hi all,

Here’s our new website for posting a poem a day in April during National Poetry Month! It should be relatively self-explanatory. I’ll be playing with themes and formatting a bit; in the past it’s been hard to publish poems without WordPress double-spacing every single line, which is a pain.
