Hooray, the farmers market season of 2014 has begun! I started this poem-season in the sweet little town of Lanesboro, Minnesota, where I’m working with the Lanesboro Arts Center to bring free interactive poetry to the public! Yeah! Lucky Lanesboro. 🙂 I wrote poems for a steady stream of tourists, locals, and (of course) vendors. Here are a few favorites from the event (which I just noticed happen to all be for vendors…they have the best poem-ideas!) See more in this photo album by Lanesboro Arts Center.
“Snakes” and “Dragons” were requested by two brothers. This was for the makers of Crooked Pine Soap. I bought a bar of lilac-scented soap from them and it is delicious-smelling and sure to hold me over until the lilacs bloom! Is it possible to be addicted to soap?
