Poets of the 315am Experiment   

The idea was to discover what connections would be made while

writing separately, but together, at the same time for a month while

under hypnogogic influences…315experiment.com


 at 3:15, world slows,

mind opens to impulse, direction, wandering …

it is what the day brought and what is right in front of.

there is more room at 3:15 to let this all in
