The Twitter of Poets

Sylvia Plath @sPlath Apr 9
I am well educated about death.
It arrived at my first breath
and steals heartbeats with the speed of a hare.
                     #life #death

Edgar Allan Poe @RealPoe Apr 9
Really? @sPlath I am the master of melancholy.
While you bemoan the loss of heart,
I am pecked morbid by a raven. #melancholy #ravenissues


Susie Clevenger @wingsobutterfly Apr 9
Please! @sPlath @RealPoe Life happens, bell jars break
and birds leave a mess. Drink a glass of wine
and stop living obituaries. #lifehappens  #obituaries

This was so perfectly done! You set it up exactly life a Twitter war, hashtags and all, yet nicely captured the poets' sensibilities.

Oh, Susie, I'm laughing so hard right now. Thanks so much for this. I've truly enjoyed the competition between Poe and Plath, and the tags... dear goodness, those tags!

I will come back to this one often, especially to reread your ending stanza-tweet.

Wake up to real life, Guys. Huh? I especially liked the reminder that birds poop. Yes, way too much, cleaning after them is a constant battle if you have birds around.
