The Butts-and-Holly Poetry Contest

This forum needs more excitement; as such I'm going to give shit away.

In a post below: Show me three of your best on-site poems and I'll assign you a random animal based on your talent level, but not an obvious one, so you will be left to wonder whether it is a compliment or an insult; this will be a point for further discussion. I'll also (less randomly and based on who got the most adorable animal, external judge will be used here) buy at least one of you a three-month subscription to the site. Deadline's Friday unless I get a clear winner before then. Bonus points for poems being hipsterlicious and legible--I've been reading submissions elsewhere that have invented adverbs like "godzilla-ly" so if your poems have that, well, your spirit animal's a tardigrade and don't bother.

In true hipster-lit-review fashion, feel free to also show up to one piece of gonzo journalism, film photography, or performance art involving communion wafers and lube.

I didn't have any pomes, so I wrote one just for you. :iconbiggrinplz: It's ever so intellectual.

In a laneway bar where I first saw you,
Over my Ray Bans, how I adore you.
You look a little like Bon Iver,
But with worse clothes and better hair.

I'd like to follow you on Tumblr,
But I get shy and simply mumble a
Quick 'hello' then retreat,
Fake grass beneath my slippered feet.

As I ponder the space between you 'n me,
I am overcome with ennui.
I wish I was bold as my reindeer cardigan,
Then we'd never be apart again.

Because ocelots get all the spotlight, sadly.

Why not? I am curious what animal I am. Oh, and don't mind the preview pictures

Totally a shoebill.
