poem before you might go out dancing tonight

From the new issue of The Broken Plate. A poem by Ryan Ridge.


Dear Ryan,

We enjoyed reading your poems. They were fun, but unfortunately they didn’t work for us, so we’ll have to pass. However, we would like to have you over for dinner next Tuesday at 6 pm.

do you have any poems memorized?

(how many poems do you have memorized?)



From an email:

We’ve started a blog called Horrible Poems from Horrible Emails.

Basically, we take emails that are boring, asinine, tedious, or just plain horrible and turn them into equally horrible poems.

If you or your friends have some emails that fit the bill, please submit them to HorriblePoemsHorribleEmails@gmail.com and we’ll see what, if anything, we can do.

Hopefully we can do at least one a day.

Emails don’t have to be particularly raunchy or obscene. They just have to have the potential to be an awesome (by awesome I mean bad) poem.
