get on the psyched train for this rad mag! 

i’m down and probably around either night!
i’m down to jaaaaaaaam! how do we get involved??

Cool you guys! I’ll probably do one tonight and I’ll just post a link to a google doc here and if you want to play you just click on that sucker and come write with us. Keep in mind that tonight is gonna be after midnight mountain time so if you’re up for that one you’ll probably have to stay up late depending on your timezone. I’ll probably do one tomorrow also/instead depending on how many show up for tonight.

oh sweet! and i was here; i just didn’t have much to contribute until the last two lines. looking forward to the next!

Oh no I got it backwards! It must have been urbsantiquafuit that ducked out early. I’ll fix that right now.

The second poem from the first poetry jam, featuring thoughtsfromsomewhere, unknowmenclature and myself. (urbsantiquafuit had to leave after the first one) Another one late tonight (like probably past midnight Mountain Time) or tomorrow night!

Poetry Jam tonight or tomorrow night! Who’s down to get together and just write a poem or two on a Google doc and then post them on Tumblr because they are awesome?

We are all running around wishingwe were astronauts.We like outerspace.We like it becauseit is empty and we like to look at the pretty lights.Once I lived inside a glass jarwith some holes poked in the lidbut I couldn’t afford the rent.Once I got kicked out of a hotel for puttingfireflies in my refrigerator.Somewhere, there is a hotel manager going through a tough divorce.There is also an astronaut who wanted to be a rapper.

We are all running around wishing
we were astronauts.
We like outerspace.

We like it because
it is empty and we like to look at the pretty lights.

Once I lived inside a glass jar
with some holes poked in the lid
but I couldn’t afford the rent.

Once I got kicked out of a hotel for putting
fireflies in my refrigerator.

Somewhere, there is a hotel manager going through a tough divorce.
There is also an astronaut who wanted to be a rapper.

A swallow soaring and dipping
And a seagull crying
These are the only living
In a world that is dying
Richard Church, “Nightfall”, The Best Poems of 1926
It was for this,
This obtuse taking of the seaward path,
This stupid hearing of larks, this hooking
Of wicker, this absent observation of sheep
Kneeling in harsh sea grass, the cool hand shading
The spray stung eyes—it was for this the rock
Smote itself. The sea is higher today,
And the eggs are cheaper.
Conrad Aiken, “Sea Holly”, The Best Poems of 1926

'nother poetry jam tonight or tomorrow? which sounds better? let me know.

Also, some great news for all poetry lovers! I don’t know how many people remember a blog here called ltrtr, but he made this awesome book and he was one of my all time favorite poets on tumblr but then he disappeared. But now he’s back and he’s  still on top of his game as far as I’m concerned, so go check out his blog here!

RAIN MAKES THE RIVER HEAVY

People are enjoying attacking
certain phrases.
Even though several years ago the singular
factory that makes all weapons closed down
and now they are using bones and rocks.

Everything I say is somehow attached
physically
to something that is alive
and weighs several tons.

Very often a lady will go and write sentences on balloons
and tie them to the thing but once
a man in a black coat shot it with an arrow.

I think there are lizards in heaven
lots of them
and I think I talk long enough,
then the very heavy animal will ascend into heaven
and feast on the lizards.

My mouth now is numb and raining
and rain makes the river heavy.

My friends and I went into Denver and we went into Westside Books. They had a better poetry shelf than a lot of used bookstores. Look at this awesome book! It’s exactly the kind of poetry I’ve been craving recently. Perfect!
