Out of the ash I rise with my red hair

National Poetry Month, fools!

It’s National Poetry Month, y’all! Now, I’m sure you already have a ton of plans, but one thing you might consider squeezing in your jam-packed poetry schedule is taking a look at the Free Verse project. Put on by the Academy of American Poets, the project invites people to write down a line of famous poetry in such a way that it “invites the line’s undoing.” Nerdy, arty awesomeness. I’ll be doing my own this week, and so should you. Check out the Flickr photostream here.
