Celebration of Poetry Month with Two-Bit Poetry
In celebration of National Poetry Month, The Healing Muse installed a poetry gumball machine on the 9th floor of Weiskotten for the month of April. A mere quarter gets you a poem from a recent issue of The Healing Muse, SUNY Upstate’s journal of literary and visual arts.
The journal, entering its 13th year, features writing from Upstate’s students, faculty, and staff, as well as both national and international writers. All proceeds will go to support our annual Dearing Writing Award for students.
A limerick from our poet friend Bruce Bennett from Wells College celebrates this effort:
A gumball machine? Something new!
A quarter per poem, just for you.
It’s pretty darn neat:
it comes as a treat
that you can chew over, not chew.
