National Poetry Month Poem of the Day: 'Thanksgiving in the Catskills no Cell Reception or Internet' by Tommy Pico

Hey hey, my poem “Thanksgiving in the Catskills with No Cell Reception or Internet” is poem of the day up on Flavorwire—a cool thing they’re doing for National Poetry month. Check it out!!!

I can’t believe the months and months of hard work are over. At times it was a grind, like it would never come out, that maybe the hard work wasn’t worth it. Then the overwhelming panic of having produced something and sending it out into the world. And now… I’m not quite sure how to feel. I mean, I feel totally accomplished and proud, and indebted to Cat Glennon and VERBALVISUAL for making the app look as beautiful as it is. But also there’s something like a ringing in the ears. Like in the wake of some explosion, or like the trail of white after a firework goes off. It’s totally fine, but also like—now what?
I’ve made enough things by now to know that this is a part of a project’s life cycle, so maybe this is a time for recollection and maybe even a little trip?
Also absentMINDR got some love from HTMLGIANT today, calling my voice “pitch perfect,” and that the presentation is “slick and gorgeous”—“The app considers the poetry, the art matches the tone. Books rarely match content with UX this well.”
So, feelin fine, if a little junction-y :-) High-res
