Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Things I’ve learned about my poetry habits today: 1. I’ve shared the same poem/quote three times in three separate years, each time as if it was the first. 2. I once wrote a weird haiku about Michelle Obama and the Queen hugging?! (“I have no memory of this place.”) 3. There were a few other […]

poetry & tumblr

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

It’s not that I dislike poetry, I just don’t tend to think of it as something I love. (Although an argument could be made that things like tumblr tags are a poetry of their own, and I certainly spend plenty of time reading those.) But there are certain poems I tend to think of, and […]

rainy sunday

Still one of my favorite poems to revisit, re-read, and enjoy again: Art is a facebook status about your winter break by b.e. fitzgerald I swear to every heaven ever imagined, if I hear one more dead-eyed hipster tell me that art is dead, I will personally summon Shakespeare from the grave so he can […]

yes, I’ve read a poem

Friday, May 16th, 2014

And I liked it! Tumblr keeps changing how to do stuff, so it took me an embarrassingly long time to get links to this that I could expect to work, but here they are! The poem on the author’s tumblr! Art is a Facebook status about your winter break., by b.e. fitzgerald I saw it […]
