Meet you at Rodeo Bar Trail boss of kisses What rhymes with lime ricky?

Meet us at the garden party Watering daffodils is a party


Work hard and play fair Work andunderwear play fair Party hard in your Party in your underwear


Carrying a hero inside like a dummy That’s a party


Talk to me, dummy, say, “Drumroll please”


Live and die inside the die Let fly Shake, stir, roll and spin it Swing your partner Round and round Go down swinging Write your own “ticket� Sing Here


“This poem is a manifesto for the nascient ‘eventworks’ movement that stresses collaboration, community and cause-based art. Welcome to the new world ardor.” —Michael Andre
