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.

I always knew that deep down in every human heart, there is mercy and generosity. No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
