STAR*** **OOP**S: A Surreal Space Poetry Project

Thanks to Teg for helping with the image!

I got this crazy idea for a poetry project. I was going to take one of the numerous books I have lying around and use it to create poetry! Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein wasn’t the only book lying around but I figured it’s be the most interesting book to try this with. How does it work? I use each page to write a poem striking out the words I don’t want to use, whatever is left is the poem. Each page is it’s own poem and the entire book is one really long weird poem. Starship Troopers is 263 pages long so I’ll have plenty of fodder! Here is the first installment:

I always had hypnotic brainwaves
trembling in the drop

like coconuts while they fell
wasn’t bad

Beer of the Week 40: Hell or High Watermelon

21 Amendment brewery’s Hell or High Watermelon Wheat Beer

From their site:

Hell or High Watermelon Wheat is our summer seasonal beer available from April through September in six pack cans and on draft. We start by brewing a classic American wheat beer, which undergoes a traditional secondary fermentation using fresh watermelon. A straw-colored, refreshing beer with a kiss of watermelon aroma and flavor.

From my notes:

Opaque peach color, small bubbled head that dissipates quickly. Smells of wheat, maybe spice and fruit. First taste of the beer has a watermelon taste, like Jolly Rancher’s watermelon. light bitter finish. The feel is thin and  little odd.  The taste, overall, seems artificial. Lightly carbonated.

This beer stumped me.

Despite watermelon being one of my favorite fruits I just couldn’t get into this beer. Not an amazing wheat beer and the watermelon flavor was more of a turn off than anything.
