Thank you all for your spectacular poetry submissions! After much difficult deliberation, the panel has made its decision. And the winners are:
P. Antone, the friendly cocktail mixing guide, aka “Pierre, the Picadilly Druler ”
With the big red letter A pressed onto his forehead, bit into a baked lite knob of dumpings,
And screamed “No more sticky polymer on my plate, please, and I demand proof of it!”
Then made his hasty getaway on rubber rollerskates toward a bright sunset on the sea.
It’s a solid letterpress plan;
and then the rubber rollers hum,
and the Pantone mixing guide fans and fans and fans,
and the proof is the proof
that better plans are planned.
Oh, Pantone mixing guide, your recipes confound!
The rubber roller, it rubs…it rubs.
It rubs up ‘gainst my knobby bakelite heart.
HONORABLE MENTION FOR QUANTITY:
Sonja, for breaking all the rules and writing an epic poem
Christine, for submitting four poems
Congratulations to you all for your shockingly good letterpress poetry. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and I will ship you your prize! (Christine and Sonja, too!)
And to everyone who submitted, you made my day. Thank you. I wish I could part with more proofs so that I could ship one to everyone, but I have to use them tomorrow when I get back on the press.
