"Song of Myself"
excerpt from the poem by Walt Whitman

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.
I loaf and invite my soul,
I lean and loaf at my ease observing a spear of summer grass.

The winner takes away a $100 cash prize. All writers will receive feedback for their submission.

Deadline: Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
