Sponsored by Workhorse, Lexington Poetry Month is an easy to use
platform for poets to publish and share their work in an attractive
way. The community is supportive and diverse, commenting and
encouraging one another throughout June. Money we raise goes
to maintaining the cost of the website and publishing the yearly
anthology. Our goals are to provide every poet (~150) a copy of
the anthology, lower printing costs, and expand opportunities
offered during Lexington Poetry Month, such as featured readings
and poetry workshops.
At the market a lady named mama sells me some essential oils to rub on my bald head. “Ooh, ahhh.” She rubs a sample on my arm. It smells like lemongrass and my ex. I can’t stop staring at the gap between her teeth and the memories.
“It smells like lemongrass/and my ex.” Awesome! Little poem with mighty punch!
Powerful poem. Those last two lines!
