NATIONAL POETRY MONTH
Aluminum foil is magical and shiny.
And you can make badass hats out of it!
I’ve always wanted a beard.
My summer job fell through,
hook me up
if you hear of any job postings.
I, for one, am glad poetry month is over,
since it's been a constant reminder
I haven't written much of any poetry lately.
We didn't let the kids watch TV tonight.
They're acting out impromptu sketches for us.
It's largely schizophrenic.
