Poetry Out Loud

10 Maine Students compete in State Finals at Gracie Theatre

BANGOR Bards used to be big deals. They held court with kings and queens, spoke many languages, and could recite verse and stories from memory. They were highly regarded, valued, and sought after. And for some reason, that regard as faded with time. There is a disconnect between the written word and the audience of today, and poetry in particular seems to have fallen from grace.

Wii Bowling: The Rock Opera

I'm just a poor boy, bad at Wii Bowling

Cold blue eyes, calculating.

Red hair, brushed away from face.

Wiimote gripped like a weapon

And a consistent guise of grace

As she squints at her targets

Tiny 10-pins, arranged like

Helpless, tipsy victims
