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!

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 08/28/16
by Lacey Smith
and suddenly it was autumn again, the trees
shaking in the bare lengths of their hands, ground
scattered with remnants, rotten memories
I shiver, draw the coat in tighter, taking tiny steps
toward this halfway home, a place I needn't know
tomorrow I will throw off this bitter shawl and soak
down your smile like it is a word I've looked up
many times before but still stumble and I will
wait by the window for you to sweep me up
but for now I will sink into the floor until you
cannot see me anymore and even if you call
I won't hear the ringing.
