Daily Poetry For The Win


We're sitting on the very brink of 2007. It's been seventeen years since the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany, sixteen years since the Persian Gulf War, thirteen since the start of the Rwandan Genocide, six years since the attacks on the World Trade Centre, three years since the start of the American Iraq, and about godknowshowlong until the world oil supply crashes and we all die.


I write. I write well, sometimes, and I write shittily other times. I have one resolution for 2007: And that's to write one poem, every day, until December 31st, 2007.

Let's begin.

This is a poem
and it's a simple poem
but does that matter?

See you in 2007.
