Twas the night before Poemdemonium, and all through The Black Box, Not a person was sitting, not even with socks.

Figuratively at least. (Nathan here.) With only 8 days to go until the main event, I thought I’d share an actual poem of mine. Honestly, I’d love to sit and write a very thoughtful witty piece but I’m far, far too warm to think. So, this is a poem about a lamppost. Or is it?Read More
