Contemporary poetry

I'm sure that I've seen all of these at one open mike or another. You?

I think you're right.... ;)

But then, maybe I should be using it as a list of new poetic forms I should try... wonder if I'd be any good at number 27? Or maybe number 13... that's probably more salable.
And, after a while, I'll work myself up to number 36.

OMFG! I know who 11 is! What's worse, after reading letters he'd wrote to the editors of the Plain Dealer (that they didn't print) for ten minutes at the mic, he started calling the toll-free number I have for phone readings four times a day! "Letter to the Editor, July 19th 1993..." I finally blocked all calls from his number.

I've actually written poems in 12 of these 40 categories (yes, I counted). I must be sooo modern.

The next time read something from this list, feel free to gag me, throw something at me or just gang up on me and kick my ass.
