Episode 48: This Hand

Episode 48: This Hand takes an almost-concrete poem about devastating loss that was left on the museum’s “wall of love.” For all of us who have lost our animal friends, this poem strikes home.
The Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry wall of hands. This is part of an exhibit on themes in poetry, and this wall is about LOVE. The quilt was a wedding present made for ROMP Director Shaun Perkins for her wedding in 1988 by her grandmother Ruby Wilkinson. The “hands” can be moved and touched and grasped. The prompt asks you to trace your hand and then put a poem about love on the hand and tape it to the wall.

Episode 47: Oklahoma Acrostic

Episode 47: Oklahoma Acrostic is about a Louisiana poet who sent us a card in the actual postal mail with an Okie poem on it, a form mastered by Arnold Schwarzenegger, maybe. Who knows? OK!

Episode 47: Oklahoma Acrostic is a poem on a postcard sent through the postal mails, which recalls Oklahoma memories and weird state “flowers.” Obvious Bill resees poetry, invents rhyme-sniping, and Shaun has her work cut out for her in Poetry Court.

Do you know a super cowboy or want to know what being one entails? Are you one looking for that special cowgirl? . . . We shall give you all the answers to these questions in this episode . . . maybe.

Episode 46: Super Cowboy is about a poor ole cowpoke doing all his chores and always hoping a cowgirl will show up somewhere on the range. Jim Reeves starts us out and a really bad poem rounds us out . . . or up.

Episode 45: On the Way

Are your pockets full of treasure? Full of memories . . . or lint or fried chicken?
