Smallvilles : Real US Towns, Imagined Voices

Poems (un)inspired by the names of small towns gleaned from US census information. Any similarity between these poems and real towns is purely unbelievable. I haven't used the names on the map, but may do, one day.

Comments

Yes, the names of the towns are real... the poems are not... Well, they're virtual, aren't they? Never underestimate the power of fools in large groups. graffito in bar outside US Air Base in Turkey
