..who just published his first volume of poetry! Entitled Leaves from my Box Elder, it comes just in time for the 150th anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike.

So, like the title says--congrats, Leonard!

Everything is Broken - 02/06/2018

As I write this, I don't actually know if it will post successfully. Let's see.

Sorry to report that the owner of this website has abandoned it. We owe him eternal gratitude for all the work that went into building it in the first place, and for continuing to foot the bill that keeps it online at all. That said: we apologize for the bugs, but there's nothing we can do to fix them.


CURRENT MEMBERS:
Keep steady backups of your poetry. And everything else--that's just practical advice for a digital world.

In case you didn't realize, private messaging does not work. Your messages are not reaching their recipients.

The moderators can pick poems of the day. That's about it for our powers.


APPLICANTS:
I am sorry. Site errors will prevent me from making you a member. I promise that we'd have welcomed you to this community if we could.

I guess that's it. Hope you're having a good day.

Poem of the Day for 04/18/21

Goodbye
by Jim Moore

This is not the end—not a finale nor a sudden stop.
Gravity has lingered here long enough,
Avoiding the collisions and the halting of footsteps—
The echoes they leave behind.

We can turn back from here,
Take stock of the pale shades that we’ve weathered,
The handful of sighs gone to seed,
So long is not so far away.
