Poetry Friday

OH MY GOSH I'm hosting Poetry Friday!!!

Let me try to describe the state of my brain right now: it was mushy mushy mush, and then I ate some M&Ms. Buoyed by a sugar buzz, I checked my email only to discover I had been set to host Poetry Friday. And I didn't realize! It's like throwing a huge party and then answering the door in your rattiest pajamas with no make-up and greasy hair.

ANYWAY.

It is 10 PM where I am, so by 8 AM tomorrow, July 4th, I will be washed and dressed and have cute cucumber sandwiches with the crusts sliced off. Please join me for Poetry Friday!!!

Also - if you have something to contribute, drop me an email at aerinblogs AT aol DOT com.
