Need Haiku Competitors

Folks – I need to find a minimum of 4 competitors for this upcoming Haiku event in Richmond. I need 4+ people to commit to coming out, bringing 20-30 pre-written haiku (simply a three line poem, lines containing 5-7-5 syllables) and competing. Who is gonna help me out this next event?? May 17th at 8pm at 123 E. main st. Rva aka Electric Nomad Dance Studio. Possible prizes. Your Haiku can be about anything. Also, if you are interested in sponsoring these events, so we can pay the poets and give them prizes, please hit me up. I am not the main organizer of this event but I love the shit out of it and I am competing against Raven Mack in the Life Match, so I am trying to help. This Southern Gothic Futurism haiku thing brings together people to create a community of cousins, it celebrates storytelling, the south, weirdos and queerdos and all in between. It is legit fun and some of the best laughing I do each month (the event goes down in Cville and Rva check it out) email me at mokarnage@gmail.com for info or to commit

Sore throat feels like words

Caught halfway out, snagged on some

Reservation. Shhh.

People dying left

And right. Tenuous grip on

Life force is spreading
Words matter. Language

Matters. Protesters shot by

Isrealis. Murdered. 
People on bikes killed

By people in cars. Probly

Texting or drunk. Death.
Whether it is drug

Deals gone bad, armed robbery,

Or drug overdose

Or suicide there

Doesn’t seem to be much more

Natural death now

Unless our nature

Is to be miserable

Suffering fuckheads.
