New Poem: "Futility"

On March 5, 2008, the Raving Poets return to their cozy little Yianni's basement, The Kasbar. Details of the next reading series we're doing can be found at the Raving Poets' website. I hope to see all of you there. It promises to be a great feat of literature. In the meantime here's a new poem. It's short and sweet.

I mailed you a tin can.
It should have arrived by now.

I'm very sorry;

the postman made me cut the string.
