|Description||“A political poem has to be a polis. And it means that you’re going to have to include within the political poem the notion of polis so that you let men, women…all kinds of people, let them have their lives within it.” These words were spoken by Robin Blaser in a 2006 interview. Blaser also famously penned a series of poems called “The Truth Is Laughter.” In this year’s contest, we are looking for poems that consider and question the idea of a polis and the idea that laughter is a form of truth. Submit a maximum of 6 pages per entry. The winning entry receives an award of $1000, plus publication in an upcoming issue of TCR.|
