There once were two girls who liked words.
They watched them like some men watch birds.
They read and they wrote—
Books had them by the throat!
Forsooth, they were seriously nerds.
That terrible limerick is my way of telling you that we’re doing poetry this month. Most of them will be better than that one.
And I can’t find a poetry-focused bookstore that allows you to shop online, which—shocker. So we’re linking to Rainy Day Books in Kansas City because poetry is like a cleansing rain for the soul.
