The Pathetic Book of Poetry - 04/08/2014
by V. Blake
Our very own Jody Pratt was cool enough to put together a book of poetry using submissions from Pathetic members. Read more about it in the forums--you can even just click this link if you're feeling lazy, so no excuses.
Thanks go out to Jody for his efforts and to everyone who submitted their work to make it possible. Go get yourself a copy!

Stop, Collaborate, and Listen Contest Results - 09/20/2011
by V. Blake
Well, the extended contest is over, and we have our results! Congratulations to our winners, and a sincere thanks to all the participants!
Scarecrow by Frankie Sanchez and Steven Kenworthy
Everyone else! (Sorry. The submissions were too few to warrant runner-up selections!)
There wasn't a huge pool of submissions this time around, but all the ones we got were awesome. Thanks again everybody.
Stop, Collaborate, and Listen Contest - 08/28/2011
by V. Blake
Well, the initial closing of the contest was to take place last night, but as we've only had two submissions so far, I have decided to extend the date by a couple of weeks to give everyone some more time. I understand collaborations don't always get done in a neat schedule, so I am hoping this will allow for a bit more competition.
Poem of the Day for 02/20/17
on poetry, itself
by Kate Swearingen
It comes in waves -
days that words seep through every fiber
and hasten to move the lead,
rough scratches like urgent whispers of truth.
And others yet where thoughts are obscured
drawn out on threads and muddled in insignificance.
Flood or famine, still, the results remain -
continuous drops of candor
a map of constant change
through dependence, liberty, fear
inner strength, uncertainty.
The tone shifts, the road bends,
and the you’s of yesterday don’t connect
to the I’s in words today.
Only through time
persistence and time
can we see the waves shaping the shore
each one erasing what was
and creating anew.
