Are you going to turn that into a real t-shirt folks can buy? You can at cafepress.com.

I love the shirt, btw.

Jayne, I tried the cafepress thing a year ago with poetry shirts from another site. For some strange reason, there is a very small market for poetry humor. That - or I sucked at making Tshirts.

I'll probably reopen my cafepress store and integrate it into my sidebar... once this blog has cornered the traffic market on all 92 internet poets.

I would buy this shirt for my wife. She only studies the dead white guys. This is perfect!

I would buy one. It would be a great thing to have at school as well as for any formal parties I might attend. (Though the invitations to such things are harder and harder to come by as I more and more resemble a dead poet. Go figure.)

I'm still not sure about Frost as the Laureate, however. I would prefer Bukowski if for no other reason than I would love to have video of him meeting our current (or any) President.

love it, Carl. I definitely think you should reopen the store. BTW - Big funny on the 92 internet poets.

Thanks all!

I was kept up all night by my wife singing a Paul Simon song in her sleep. I was too tired to come up with a blog post today, so I made a quick tshirt.

The song was "Fifty ways to leave your lover" but she sang it as "fifty ways to grieve your mother." It went like this:

There must be fifty ways to grieve your mother
Fifty ways to grieve your mother

Just step on a crack, Jack
Wreck her new van, Stan
You don't need to share toys, Roy
Just go climb a tree
Learn how to cuss, Gus
You don't wanna discuss much
Just set the cat free, Lee
And eat all the cheese
...

and on, and on all night.

You can read the rest on her blog if you like.

Still not so hot on Frost but I would totally buy this. I'm willing to pay at least $2. :P

Am I the only one who loves Frost? Poor Frost. I know exactly how he feels.

Okay, it's Bukowski by popular demand.
And if you must have it, it's available on my newly-opened cafepress shop.

Noooo! It can't be Bukowski. If I'm going to get thrown in jail for threatening the lives of poets, I want it to be for someone other than Bukowski. My lame friends wouldn't even know who Bukowski is!

How about if I promise to send a black magic marker with each shirt purchase? You could cross out bukowski and write whomever you wanted. Actually, I could just sell magic markers and let people make their own shirts. How much would you be willing to pay for a sharpie?

Thanks for linking to my blog, sweetie. That should get one of us some sympathy votes.
