Fat Poets Speak movie?

One of my former poetry workshop professors recently had a movie made about his life. Of course most of the good stuff -all the intriguing, unwieldy, emotional attachments and decisions- just isn't in there. Oh, well..

I think it would be kind of cool to have a movie made about the poets in Fat Poets Speak 1 and 2, featuring us all reading, discussing, going through our days, being happy, sad, thoughtful, excited in turn. We could have music, as well. We could even dance.

It could also show us all writing/typing at our desks or tables or wherever we write//type. It could even show our cats or dogs jumping on our laps and screens. It could show us walking around our respective rooms, deriving inspiration. Around the yard, too. (Since I derive at least half of my inspiration in the bathroom, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to show it..)

And how about showing us having people over and reading our poems to them?

Hmm. I think we need  Fat Poets Speak tee shirts.


  1. Yay! I want to be in a movie about us. :) Failing that, I'd love to wear a t-shirt! Sign me up!

  2. You can dance in the movie, too, Lesleigh!
