I am like the brine in a pickle jar

my own recipe!

like antique honey preserved all this time but

spread on fresh bread

I decided to write a whole book of these bad poems. There will be exactly sixty of them. Please help me come up with a title.


Most poetry is going to be bad anyway, so I thought I would short-circuit the process and go directly for utter badness. Nevertheless, my friends often tell me that I could do even worse, and that there are a few lines here and there that aren't bad enough. They accuse me of trying to write good poetry in the guise of ineptness. Still, I have put in enough ham-fisted line-breaks, awkward similes, and wordy explanatory filler to displease any discerning reader.
