Peter Davis - Double Room - Poetry! Poetry! Poetry!
I missed these until just today. These poems are wonderfully fun. I kept thinking, OK, this is great, but it can’t continue, right, and then it continued.
Twelve poems from POETRY! POETRY! POETRY!
Here’s a taste:
POEM ADDRESSING PEOPLE WHO ARE TIRED, HUNGRY, OR HORNY
These things can wait. This is a very good poem and you’d be myopic to lose sight of that simply because some of your baser needs are asserting themselves. I’ll keep this short, but you should exercise some control, okay? Stay with me here. Allow this poem to carry you beyond yourself, transcending your silly flesh, wedding you with all the beauty that is just piling up here.
POEM ADDRESSING THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT HAS FORCED YOU TO READ THIS POEM
I’m sorry you’re being forced to read this; on the other hand, I’m glad it’s come to this.
POEM ADDRESSING PEOPLE WITH CERTAIN EXPECTATIONS ABOUT POETRY THAT ARE NOT FULFILLED IN THIS POEM
