Poetry! As Told by… Robots?

Robots are usually prized for their superhuman dexterity and mathematical computational abilities. That’s nice, but did you know they could dance?   There’s a pesky little robot who’s been dancing around my sketchbooks for years. He’s a tenacious little fellow who enjoys roller coaster rides and hot dogs. One day he popped into my blog, where I’ve been voraciously posting for years. He looked at me and said, “hey, can I do this?” Of course, I told him no. However, I promised to let him borrow some of my best poems for a book of his own. He brought all of his friends and nestled into the pages. I haven’t seen him since. Be sure to keep a lookout for him, and remind him to send me postcards every once in a while. And don’t worry. No robots were harmed in the making of this book: Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Like this:Like...
