Atrocious Poems A To Z Makes Me the Leading Dadaist of the 21st Century

I know, I know, like 97% of Americans at this point, you too have written a children's book. And like 68% of Americans, you've published it, too. But like 0% of everyone else mine is on the walls of a major American museum. 

My book, Atrocious Poems A To Z debuted in a show titled Bittersweet Observations at the Rockford Art Museum last night, and I want to say that's pretty much a huge deal. 

Here are children writing on Zombie Logic Press typewriters in front of the 26 panels from the book.

They also let me write my poem about urination on the wall. 

I'm not sure if any other poets in America have ever been able to accomplish this task. Here's the poem I am writing on the wall in this picture.


U is for urination,
With boys and girls
There is a variation.
Boys pee, it seems,
Comes out in streams,
But often misses its
While girls, we all know,
When they have to go,
Deliver theirs' with
Grace and precision.

It is unquestionably true that with the opening of this exhibit I must now be considered the foremost Dadaist of the 21st century. 

Both local papers have described the how as a roaring success. Not only have I given them poop and urine, and I've made them like it. 

You can now buy the book Atrocious Poems A To Z at Amazon
