Gina Myers and Julia

have made for an almost flawless segue between tiger season and National Football Season. But, OH! Don't let that stop you from sending us your tiger poems. We'll be accepting them for a little while longer.

BUT MOSTLY, here is Gina's tiger poem. You can hear her read at Frequency on September 5th, with Ed Berrigan. You can read more of her work by following links to the right, or by typing "Gina Myers" into a search engine.


Tigers burn bright.
Tigers party all night.
Tigers play baseball—
they’re all right.
Tigers ain’t 'fraid to fight.

Their tiger stripes
are out of sight.
Tigers are big & bad.
You’re not a tiger?
Oh so sad.


Lordy. We LOVE Gina Myers.
