About me

Industry Publishing
Location Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Introduction Our mission is to publish refined poetry by "poets of place,” with themes deeply rooted in place. We value poetry that is architecturally functional and distinctive on the page. We value poetry that is stripped—burnt down—to its purest state, in both form and context. We value brave poetry that takes risks and, therefore, resonates with a discriminating audience. We value soulful poetry from the core—recited or read aloud—as it was originally intended.
Interests traditional form poems, free-verse poems, ode poems, narrative poems, prose poems, SLAM & spoken-word poems, poems poems and more poems

You're trapped in a well with a goat and a slinky. Describe how you will escape.

Wrap slinky snuggly but comfortably around goat's hooves. Test spring action of slinky beneath goat to establish bounce-back action. Mount goat (Keep thoughts G-rated, people). Assuming it's dry, push with feet off well bottom to create dribble effect. With each bounce increase propulsion for human-goat-slinky. ESCAPE!
