Personal Poem Project

I, Matthew, used to write a lot more poetry—in a stricter sense of the word. I very much want to return to the habit of producing at least a poem a day. I always found this practice easier when I was involved in a poetry workshop or some sort of formal situation that lent urgency or a semi-obligation to others to maintain the regimen. This is why I would like to incorporate you in the process. For a nominal fee you will receive the only, or at least the first, physical copy of a freshly conjured poem of substantial length and effort according to my not so unestablished standards. I am seriously gonna write a nice handwritten or maybe type-written poem and mail it to your house. There may be a doodle or two. You are allowed to provide one word that may shape or influence said poem, but that is totally optional.

You may type one word:
