..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.

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.

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.

Christmas Traffic
by Anastasia Shows

Some view christmas as baby jesus and ornaments on the tree,
but all i can see is the tail lights of all the cars in front of me.
Yes, it happens every year,
Traffic souring everyone's christmas cheer.
While on the way home from last minute gift shopping,
I spend hours in traffic perpetually starting and stopping.

So why bother to edge around that car,
I know know i'm not going to get very far.
No need bash that brown sedan into metal shards,
Just sit back adn address your christmas cards.

hours go by, still on the same road,
my sound judgement is starting to corrode
Now, my stomach is starting to grumble,
and if that jerk doesn't get off my tail,
there is going to be trouble.
Well, i'm going to run the bathroom quick!
It's not like i'm going to make it home before St. Nick.
