book giveaway!

today my darling boyfriend released his poetry book! i'm so happy for him. it is a really unusual poetry book because all the lines are from his instant messenger history. some of the lines are even from conversations the two of us had together when i was in high school. also, all the lines are set in bold helvetica, all caps, so it's almost like an art book more than a poetry book. for a taste, you can view some (or all) of the poems on the website. and...he was kind enough to give me a copy to give away!



anyone can enter! all you have to do for your chance to win a copy of the book is just leave a comment below. i will choose a random winner next tuesday!

  30. Steve Roggenbuck is a horrible poet.

    Also I wrote that because if I "win" then my comment would be highly ironic. Only now it isn't because the irony has been explained.

    I am sad now. Perhaps I will comfort myself with a Roggenbuck poem.

  32. I thought the excerpts that were about hugging someone (presumably you, that or he's a VERY affectionate person) were quite sweet :) I'm not sure if I've read it all but it's nice.
