Hitchhiking poems across the Internet
The Traveling Poet is sticking it’s thumb back out and seeking literary rides across the internet.
A son of Nostrovia! Poetry, The Traveling Poet has the following message for you:
Hello. I am The Traveling Poet. I hitchhike around the internet seeking experiences. I am habitually bored with much of the literature I stumble through, and seek innovation, extremists, those who are not afraid to…
Raccoons are not too intoxicated to tear down a building
We are organizing in mass to be a force that will be destroyed before the Enemy even knows we are there. Who aroused the riot of Runt Raccoons everywhere? Who pushed us to stick our tongues in cracks in the system?
The Bosses we can’t get off our backs. The bang bang and ratatatat of police militarization. The War on Drugs. The rejection of Sincerity, the rejection of Love. The abuse of…
Internet Poetry, affordable passion
I don’t feel creative clicking and scrolling

We are sticking our thumb
We’ve been on hiatus for a good chunk of time now, resting our body and traveling soul, and are not meandering our way back towards the on ramp and sticking our thumb out.
Want to give us a lift? Submit your poetry, art, and photography to us when we reopen October 1st to help us make our way across the literary landscape.
We have a new editor among our ranks, poet Scott-Patrick Mitchell, new…
Terpischore’s Atrium with Jeremiah Walton
3.The most striking aspect about your poems is their exploration of the jagged, raw, and scarred realms of language and human experience, as opposed to the prim manicured composition many of the poets strive for. Poems such as ‘Campfire Psalms of the Lost and Angry ’,‘ Fearful 3 and ‘Where I found God’ are beautiful and unique precisely because of their haunting imagery, forceful language and a…

Filming #poetry videos and bridge climbing. Waged war between the new brain and the old. Found some head space through the currents natural process. #nhsky #merrimackriver
