I wish I could have peeped into your mind as you read just the title – I bet the image (for some) was a tad salacious.
Sorry, it’s rather less exciting… “Poetry & Tarts” refers to an event for New Zealand’s 2016 National Poetry Day, for which the Rotorua Mad Poets Society planned a month of poetry related activities for the community.
The event offered poetry readings by Mad Poets or the public – their own or other poets’ published works; and the only “tarts” available
were not among those participating,
but sitting on plates for the refreshment break.
I’m hoping Poetry & Tarts will be included in 2017’s poetry celebration!
Maybe they’ll allow costumes to be worn!
Are there poems on the Tart theme? One jingle comes to mind:
“An empty gut, an aching heart –
Both fulfilled by a lovely tart.
If you know of others, feel free to either add them to the comments (accessible once you have clicked on the title of this post), or if a longer piece, post it at your blog then please pop back and leave a link to it in the Comments.
I Really hope to see more Tart poems (of either connotation)
