FROM THE BIGGEST BUFFALO TO THE TINIEST MOSQUITO
Yesterday the chicken, today the goat, and tomorrow?
Yes, indeedy! As Tom nota bene-ed, through Meritage Press' Tiny Books series, we've raised enough now to donate a GOAT!! Keep sending in those orders -- I am absolutely confident that Tiny Books will be able to raise the BIG GIFT of nothing less than [insert drum roll] a WATER BUFFALO!!!! A carabao, as we Pinoys call those beasts! Ambition is good in Poetry, peeps -- let's put those orders together for a BIG ANIMAL!!!
And speaking of fundraising, the Auction bid for Ivy Alvarez's ONE DOZEN POISON HAY(NA)KU and The First Hay(na)ku Anthology (see prior post) is now at $20. Wooo! That's enough for two life-saving mosquito nets! You can increase bids by a mere quarter, Peeps. Every little bit helps!
Poetry -- it can be about anything, from the biggest buffalo to the tiniest mosquito. Ain't Poetry Grand!
