From The Stone Soup Servings Column Last Week

"Wreck Things" by Jennifer Jean from Friday's Oddball Magazine.

April 21: Marathon Monday and Jennifer Jean

When the Boston Marathon bombing happened last year, I cancelled Stone Soup Poetry for the evening. I hope I will not have to do that again tonight. I urge you all to come to Cambridge and share your words and thoughts on the events and even today's happenings, whether it is excitement over today's winners or praise for a family member who finished. Additionally, I want you to be in the audience when Jennifer Jean reads from her new book The Fool. Consider it a capstone to today's celebrations as well as a preview to next month's National Poetry Month festival. Let's close out one year later in the best of ways, with friends and art.

I Will Get Going...Eventually...

Getting my head back on straight.  Like Smokey above, getting my tongue back inside my mouth is optional.
