Announcing the Business Foot Massage Poetry Competition, Suckas

Hey there folks. Over here at the Greyhound Collective Poetry Revival we’re having ourselves a little friendly competition because that’s what poets do when they’re bored. What you will find is 8 submissions below, each coming from a GCPR member or alumni. We challenged the poets to write a poem beginning with the line “It was a business foot massage” because we’re quirky and shit. Below we’ve included a poll for y’all (the readers) to vote on which poem you like the best – all under the veil of anonymity so no playing favorites, folks. We will announce a winner on April 1, in celebration of the magical, mystical, whimsical National Poetry Month. Winner gets a business foot massage and eternal bragging rights. Losers will give said foot massage and receive eternal shame.

Please vote. And do so only once.

Poems were submitted by GCPR members Annie Furnald, Leya Burns, Sarah Nielsen and Petra Nanney and GCPR alumni Jerry Fagerberg, April Nicotera, Cathryn Dutton and Eve-a Strillacci.

About loyolapoets

The Greyhound Collective Poetry Revival would like to consider “mission statement” in its simplest terms. Rather than reiterate the boundaries of our task, we simply express our aim: to become a mission – a party of individuals sent out into the world with a message meant to unveil a uniting principle of truth. We define this message as “poetry.” We promote poetry as a viable and vivid art form, alive and accessible. Freed from its ivory tower, our poetry will breathe life into an ailing form while fostering an artful relationship with the greater community. We assert ourselves under the following mantra: “your mouth is a sign of how sacred your life actually is.” As a collective, we write to be sanctified. View all posts by loyolapoets
