If you are still blah to bad after all that please see us after class.

Extra Credit: Jeni Olin is a friend of ours. She writes gorgeous glam poems that sound like glass breaking and glitter falling. Here's an excerpt of the last poem she sent us via Facebook...


I depend on an air of violence
to cherish more, calm down. Still
please don't nailgun me
again in my sleep tonight.
Interred in the dripping woods of
the blue elves of the 80's
metabolizing their rejection
openly & then in teams, yay
I want to be in a boy gang
in the worst way. I'd like to be
"carried" in a fetish film. You
think you could love me? You
love me in your dreams you better
wake up & apologize.
