“Neuere Poeten tun viel Wasser in die Tinte"

"Modern poets put a lot of water in their ink."

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

To the contrary, this blog is a Certified Non-pretentious, Not-self-absorbed Zone featuring poems and verse that surprisingly often makes sense, and shuns the all-too-frequent narcissism of modern poetical chicanery.

  • if you're really dumb and don't get it, or if the writer was dumb enough to write it, and the publisher was even dumber to publish it

  • If there was a point or not, or if the pointlessness was the point, which is completely pointless because there's already enough pointlessness in our lives

  • If the big empty spaces in between the words in some poems are areas that the author totally forgot to fill in, or where they accidentally held their thumb on the space bar for too long
