Day 11 of my 66 Day Poetry Habit

I wrote a poem today but you’re not going to see it. I feel like hell and today’s poem shows it. But I wanted to be accountable, so here’s me being accountable and running a haggard eleventh lap with one seriously shitty poem tucked under my shirt. Nothing to see here. Nothing at all to see.

National Poetry Month: We Can Do Eet!

kenny-and-jeff-textIt’s finally here! April is National Poetry Month everybody, so get your pens a-blazin’, get out there, and free the verse! The challenge is to write a poem every day this month. Great, good, bad, worse, worsest, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is laying lines. Give it a try and I won’t even make you dress all poet-y like these dudes.

And if that’s not enough to entice you, here’s the After School Special pitch: C’mon man. You know you want to. I told all my friends you were cool. Don’t make me out to be a liar.

Announcement: Upcoming Poetry Reading

I will be reading Wednesday evening at the SHOUT! open mic poetry night at Half Off Books in Whittier. Come on out and see me. The theme is love poetry, (Valentine’s Day is creeping up upon us, you see), and I have chosen the infamous Naked Hemingway poem which I will read in the even more infamous sultry, sultry voice.

You know you want to hear it. You know you do.
