You know the rules. In case you don't, a brief rundown: Starting today (March 1st, except it's almost midnight so oops) until the end of the month, post one or two lines that help progress the poem. Post as often as you want, try to keep writer's varied, anyone can contribute, yada yada, ok here we go. This month's theme: Oasis. Bring your quiet forest paths and secluded beaches. Evoke your favorite corner of the library or that spot at the top of a mountain where there's nothing but the wind. If it's meditative, if it's sheltering, if it's metaphorical or literal, as long as it's an oasis you're set. Now go, my writers! Write.
Well January lasted about five years, so maybe February will feel like a real month. Okay, the rules are simple: start commenting today (Feb 1, 2018) and keep adding those coherent, sense-making lines one or two at a time until February 28 at midnight, whenever that is for you. If you want a line break, please give us a line break or a / or something to separate them! Try to submit 1-2 lines at a time. If you're like, hyper-inspired, please write a full poem and post it. I endorse inspiration. Please write here, too, though. The theme this month is color! All types and shades of color. All tints and color-codes and imagery accepted. You guys are creative people, you've got this in the bag. Go forth and write!

Dispersing thoughts, smoothie with cocoa nibs Blood milkshakes, Transylvania is a great place to fall in love. Our hearts were too cold Microwave on full defrost couldn't melt a drop Maybe if I give it 5 more minutes maybe if i rock off into doze, into sleepy mind ramble and pray tomorrow morning I will not wake in the rumble My heart was in your palm and you crushed it for the fuck of it your words are broken glass, you have shredded me apart with each word it was like losing a limb Ripping the flesh from my soulI cried out my worst sins LATE AT NIGHT WHERE NOBODY COULD WATCH WHERE THE STARS GAZE UPON YOU Shining so bright, so dear Yet still fills me with a sense of fate A fear balled up so deep in my throat, I can't spit it out I guess I'll chew it out like tobacco or snug Oral fixation is the new black. Tie me up. Tie up my restless hands and thoughts The rope burns are beautiful bracelets The greatest gift I've received: rememory, crystal-refracted? Author's Note: exquisite corpse done where each person in my class contributed one line at a time on a paper passed around the room. the paper was folded after each person went so that only the line of the person before was visible to go off of. My lines are 'maybe if i rock off into doze, into sleepy mind ramble' and 'rememory, crystal-refracted'
