About the Poems
by Soham Patel
Tamiko Beyer and I practice Bernadette Mayer's 3:15 experiment from time to time. We live in different cities so pick a night and agree to wake up together at 3:15, write for ten minutes (the original experiment calls for 30 minutes-but we don't do that), and then we read what we wrote to each other the next day via gmail or Skype. We have fun. These poems were written in June/July 2010.
