Update on the Twoem

Well, it was one bizarre poetry jam on Twitter tonight, what we call a "twoem." The starting prompt was to write in tabloid headline-ese (i.e., Nun and Brad Pitt Flee with Elvis in UFO) and we went all over the place. You can see the chronological results at #tspoetry.

I'll be taking the "tweets" and attempting to edit them into something coherent, which is going to be a challenge, since half the time we were laughing at what we were posting. A quick glance tells me we actually have several poems instead of one long poem, but we'll see. I plan to post the (edited) results on Thursday.

Thanks to @llbarkat, @TchrEric, @arestless heart, @redclaydiaries, @doallas and @mhsteger for their participation, and to @shrinkingcamel for sending poetical regrets (he was still smelling like a horse barn, the camel says, but that's another story). And now @gyoung9751 is signing off and heading in the direction of sleep.

Yay! It was so fun. Is it permissible to have that much fun on a Tuesday night? :)
