LETTER EX CALLS UPON THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN: FORMS POETRY POSSE

Attention Chicago Poets. The fate of this little ghost town called poetry has been saved. I have deputized seven poets. These seven have embarked on a journey into the most mountainous regions of the soul. Armed with their words, they hunted down the notorious outlaw allies of Yog Monster From Space and protected our land from the wretched clutches of that six-gun slingin' Dr. Goodverse.

The enemies of the spoken word thought they could hide in the hills but The Magnificent Seven tracked them down, discovered their cinders still smoldering under wet coffee grounds, measured their horse's dung for freshness, sniffed out evil and offensive anonymity as the wind blew it their way.

They met at high noon at the Bourbon Saloon and everyone received a whiskey on the house before they ventured into Vulture Valley.

3. CLICK HERE to deputize Dan Cleary.
4. CLICK HERE to deputize Emily Rose.
5. CLICK HERE to deputize Maureen Tolman Flannery.
6. CLICK HERE to deputize Martha Modena Vertreace-Doody.
