Alright, I'm back, and it's your lucky day because we're doing another feature! Yay!

Todays feature: :iconpoetontherun001:

Now, I asked him to give a description about himself, and here is what he posted:

"I'm a 17 year old poet from Michigan, and this is where I post my stray thoughts that never really become developed poems. I love music almost as much as literature, and playing the guitar and saxophone are really therapeutic. I list drinking herbal teas as a hobby."

Very nice. Now let's check out some of his work.

As his name implies, he's a poet. He does short, free-verse poems with plenty of heart. Just see for yourselves!

DanteYou walk so far down in the city
that they accept ashes instead of dollars
poems become kamikaze boys
sexy in the clouds of war
teapots in apartment windows scream
for their poet lovers who died in that war
dogs lick the bones of other dogs clean
for 9am inspection in the kennel-
this pound has gone 9 days without accident
if you ask, they'll say something about
a poor fire department
but the hounds are well-fed
Street Tunesthe saxophone player wants
to kill Harlem
with her reeds
one hundred dollar bills
rain from her horn
into the starry night
L. Hughes keeps time
with aging hands
around a gold trumpet
whispering steel notes
to the unheard child
deaf ears everywhere
Wear And TearWear my poetry out
like the family crucifix
and send it
to a strung out priest
for confession at sunset
feed the stanzas to
deadbeats in the park
with paper bags
and cheap liquor
cause this is
prohibition city
my line breaks
are unmarked graves
waiting to consume
the next generation
with new age ideas
and withdrawals
from street artists
they've all joined
a traveling circus
shadowboxing with death
and displayed proudly
by the carnies
in dirty glass tombs
their bones are weak
ready to crack open
at any moment
for the audience
under a bleeding Sun


So if you're into poetry, or just want to read a nice, well-put together poem then check this guy out! Llamas and comments are helpful, but perhaps giving him a watch would also be good.

Anyway, that's all for me. See you guy's next week!

Just double checking.  :)  I have a Fanfiction that is also a "Short Story" due to multiple chapters.  Which folder should it go into?

Fan Fiction folder. :nod: Does it have have Chapter 1/2/3 in the title so people can find it easier/know it has several parts? (that part isn't required for the group - just wondering :meow:)

Yes it does! :)  It's 5 chapters and each submission has Chap whatever in the title. :)   It's a long running Bleach Fanfic that I am rewriting.   I wanted to double check before I do something silly, like just throw the submissions anywhere with my eyes closed!  :lmao:
