Poetry Submission for 3:AM

By Ben Myers.

Poetry Readings

The poet walked onto the stage and greeted
his audience. “Hello I’d like to read you
some work from my unpublished collection
A Mountain Of Toe-Nail Clippings Toppling
Precariously Close To Young Children At Play,
which is when I decided never to read in public.

Homerphobia

I’m scared of
The Odyssey.

My Street

One tends to only notice the car alarms when they stop.

Nearly Untitled

Never trust
parents of
babies with
pierced ears.

Embryos

They don’t
know they’re
born.

Slip Of The Tongue In A Hollywood Coffee Shop

Kevin Spacey
I mean
Bacon.
