A HORSE CAN KILL YOU BY STOMPING ON YOUR HEAD
A horse can kill you by stomping on your head and
there are so many beautiful things that can kill you.
One time you were murdered by a cloud that looked like one of the less famous U.S presidents.
At your funeral everyone all destroyed themselves and each other.
Everyone is a cliff you are standing on in the future.
Everyone is your dog’s stillborn child in the past.
I would like to go to the grocery store
With you and buy bread.

Really good lineup! Really good read. Go check out the awesome work in this (Dalton Day’s is my favorite one so far)
Ekphrasis Jam! Art by Rene Magritte
Another Jam starts in 20 minutes! Be there or be square!
Anyone want to take a look at some poems I wrote and give me some advice? Or vise versa, I’ll give you my opinion if you want it too. The reason I ask is that I am putting together an e-chap and I want to make sure the poems are good. If you are interested just message me.
I will post the rest of the poems from Jam 2 today and tomorrow and then we can do Jam 3 tomorrow when I get out of class so starting @ like noon EST and going on and off until probably midnight
That will not let me be
When I would follow glory
My shadow follows me

Poetry Jam Sesh #2!!! Represent!!! This one was written by myself, tarantulasagna, hermaphroditictelephones, and I believe one other person contributed a pair of lines, but I know them only as anonymous hedgehog. If that was you, feel free to take credit!
(sorry it took so long to post it…I’ve been getting settled into college at Hofstra University and it’s been an exciting and hectic week)
We got the soundtrack and we already have two poems! Now we just need some people to come on over and JAM THE FRICK OUT MAN!
I wet ahead and set up the document for the poetry jam right now. If you want to collaborate with myself and others just click it and come on by. I’m gonna leave this open all day and just see who shows up. I might not be there the whole time but I’ll definitely be on tonight at around 8 or 9, but feel free to write whatever or edit whatever’s there. If there are two people there, work with each other and make something! Please no vandalism/ abject deletion of things.
