"Also, write, but remember
writing will not be the death of you, or the life."

Jeannine Hall Gailey, excerpt from To A Self-Proclaimed Manic Depressive Ex-Stripper Poet, After A Reading


Use as few words as possible.
In fact, hand out blank sheets of paper
and tell people it’s your finest work.

If you ever use the phrase “darkness in my soul”
be prepared for me to come to your house
and kill you.

Rick Lupert, excerpt from Rules for Poetry
