Write a poem of 40 or fewer lines, with this as the first line: “I want to play in a band with a crazy name”

The winner will receive a signed copy of Horoscopes for the Dead, Collins' latest poetry collection, as well as bragging rights that Collins chose their poem as a winner!

Deadline is July 3, 9 p.m. EST. For details on the contest and entering, click here.
There are two kinds of folks who sit around thinking about how to kill people:
psychopaths and mystery writers.

I'm the kind that pays better.

"In my contact with people I find that, as a rule, it is only the little, narrow people who live for themselves, who never read good books, who do not travel, who never open up their souls in a way to permit them to come into contact with other souls -- with the great outside world."
— Booker T. Washington, Up From Slavery
