Poetry Contest Submission 2


It was a business.

Foot massage, back massage, head massage,
we offer them all-
just as we said in the classified ads.
So you see, ladies and gentlemen of the jury,
We conceal nothing.
Granted, we pride ourselves in our creativity,
Our innovative methods,
Our casual setting,
Our full-bodied commitment to our clients-
But please, don’t underestimate our schooling
in the art of applying *just* the right pressures.
It’s only a business,
and my, do your feet look tense.

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
