ANNOUNCING: Ben Fama (cue dance music, confetti, and OMGs)

Ben Fama is the Vowel Movers spirit animal.  We still love you, previous #1 Poetry Crush, Michael Robbins (bisous**), but mercury is in retrograde and we’ve got our glittery jeggings on— and we’re ready to confess:

is our #1 Poetry Crush.

The Vowel Movers can’t wait for Fama’s AQUARIUS RISING to be published by UDP.  Until then, we’ll be eating macaroni and cheese with rainbow sprinkles on top and planning how to most efficiently write this Fama verse in glitter all over the internet:

sparklers in zero gravity
sequins stitched on a butterfly
and later in my sleep
I say aloud: take my word on it
this beautiful shipwreck
can never become real
but wake me up
and tell me I’m wrong
