AUGUST POSTCARD POETRY PROJECT

Deceptively simple:  one poem, on one postcard, mailed to one person per day for the month of August: THE AUGUST POSTCARD POETRY FESTIVAL.

Yep, I'm already two days behind.  It's my first time, okay?!

So here are the first three postcards/poems for August 1, 2 and 3.  Although I typed and taped the poems to the postcard (handwritten is supposedly the pure form), and that's technically a cheat, I DID in fact compose them each in under five minutes and they are what they are (until someday I go back and either revise or put them out of their misery).

Obviously, I need to up my postcard collection FAST.  I mean, I had to fall back on Painted Cats and Smithsonian Indians!  'nuff said.  I also blurred out the recipient's names/addresses.  Although the list is public, they might not appreciate over-publication of their mailing addresses.

Stay tuned for my daily postcard.  If you really love me, send some unique (unused) postcards my way.  Perhaps you'll see them here, with poem attached!
