Upper Rubber Boot Books’ April poetry blog tour

Monday, March 26th, 2012

So National Poetry Month is around the corner and there are all sorts of interesting challenges and promotions popping up all over the Net. Writing poetry is usually such a lonely activity that April feels a month-long party to me. One particularly cool April activity to follow is Upper Rubber Boot Books’ April multi-blog poetry tour. They’re calling it “Couplets” and here’s the link:

It’s like living in a whale,

The zigzag interior of a mouldy palate

Yawning above you, great globs of saliva

Pooled within arm’s reach

And the ultrasonic cry for affirmation

Just beyond your hearing.
