WHATEVER: POETRY OF THE 21st CENTURY

A 21st Party for the 21st Century

Remember the arguments. ‘The Twenty-first century begins in 2000.’ ‘No, it begins in 2001’
We say…’Whatever.’

Whether the century has already had its 21st birthday or whether it’s just in its twenty-first year, we’re going to mark it with a celebration of contemporary poetry. Whatever!

‘In the late 20th century and early 21st century, the word, “whatever” became a sentence in its own right’, rules Wikipedia , itself a child of the new millennium, founded in 2001.

For us the sentence reads, ‘WHATEVER is a program of diverse contemporary poetry, challenging, comforting, serious, frivolous…Whatever.’

And remember the Millenium Bug, the Grinch that would bring disaster and catastrophe to the new century. It didn’t turn up at the christening and the twenty-first century lived happily ever after… Well not quite.

The century has had more than its share of disaster and catastrophes and poets are a woke bunch, so there’s some heavy poetry.

But WHATEVER is not 9/11 24/7. Sure, you’ll be 😰 but LOL as well. BC it’s all entertainment, hundo P.

So CYA there. No whatevers. Be there. In the room where it happens.
