About Us
  “Having it all” keeps us awfully busy so we like to stop and “smell the posies,” spend quality
time with our poets, which is why our rendezvous last a full seven days–a new poet each
week, a new poem each weekday. Each year we slip room keys to 52 poets and indulge
in 260 poems. We have no issues whatsoever. Meet with us daily at No Tell Motel.

We're hot for poetic discretion.
