Wynken, Blynken, and Nod
Have you voted? Do you realize that it is your MORAL DUTY to mark a ballot? No excuses, poets. Get on it. If you don’t vote, you hereby grant permission for the poetry community of Edmonton to invade your home and torture you with its worst angst-ridden teenage poetry. Trust me, this is worse than waterboarding. You’re on warning.
After you’ve voted, be sure to swing by the Artery tonight (9535 Jasper Ave) for the cardiac-inspired Blinks in the Heart. It’ll warm the cockles and sub-cockles of your democratic heart.
A few choice tweets from day one of the festival:
Kelly Shepherd on stage right now. "There is no sacred, there is no profane." #pofest12— Michael Gravel (@mgravel) April 22, 2012
The theme of the day is mentioning Doug Barbour in every introduction. #pofest12— alexis kienlen (@alexiskienlen) April 22, 2012
See you at the blinks!
