If you haven’t visited recently, please check out the latest entry at choiceposts.
Traffic is still pretty low, so promoting it for now on this site. Eventually, choiceposts.wordpress.com will be a great place to shop to find blogs of interest — one just chooses the category and see if they like and relate to the author’s top post — if so, they maybe read the other links for that author and end up following the blog. WordPress doesn’t have anything like this — maybe this will get them to do this themselves and I can stop. Until then, would like to add a post every week or so.
At present nothing queued up for next week. If interested in being showcased just follow the instructions!
This is not just for poetry blogs so feel free to recommend this process to others. If you find a site you really love, feel free to direct them to this link for instructions at choiceposts! Would like to add a good photography site, good science site, good music site, etc.
We now have another entry at Choiceposts.WordPress.com!
I encourage everyone to either visit zendictive’s site directly or the feature at choiceposts.
I am so amazed at the quality, consistency and relevance of Art’s posts. Please visit and follow zendictive’s blog if you do not already do so.
I encourage anyone that wants to be featured at choiceposts to follow instructions and, hopefully, get a little extra traffic to their site as slowly, but surely, more traffic comes into choiceposts.

My arm fell asleep
and I wiggled my fingers
and then wiggled my hand
and then even my entire arm
yet numbness prevailed.
My heart fell asleep
and I didn’t much care
about the starving children in East Africa
or the endangered whales in Western Alaska.
My brain fell asleep
and I could no longer sort out
why I was here
or where I needed to go.
These tiny thin-tooth bedbugs bite at my body
munching on my toes,
pilfering fluids from my fingertips.
I stay awake itching
but itching only
makes the itching worse.
I, myself, somehow, finally fell asleep one night
and since then
I bounce from night
that happened in-between.
