High School Poetry, Carnival, cool ads and random pictures that caught my eye

I’m an old English major. I don’t much like poetry. Go figure.

But this is a whole ‘nother frame of reference. Be warned, this is a bit erotic:
My pal Fran is her coach. Yeah. I didn’t know poets had coachs either.

      Wish we could afford to bring them to the upcoming Chautauqua in Ecuador!

      Amazing, isn’t it? I can’t imagine how an artist works on such a huge scale. Maybe that’s why it grabs us?
