This Ain't Your Mom's Poetry Book


I wanted to create a poetry book that challenged the idea that poetry is boring, sappy, or depressing.  Instead, I wanted to create a compilation of poetry that breaks the mold and contradicts the stereotypes.  I placed flyers and spoke to art and poetry classes about the book and gathered the material I needed. What I am left with is This Ain't Your Mother's Poetry Book, a chapbook containing poetry that ranges from unique to weird to vulgar to purposefully cliché.
