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.

Surround yourself with people who are serious about being writers, and who will tell you, ‘Hey—you can do better than this.’ Who will be critical of your work, but also supportive. And who will not be competitive in a negative way.
