Nothing

If you’ve got nowhere to go, start here. Welcome to the website for nothing, a daily journal of poetry. Sometimes hourly. Each issue features not a single thing that you or anyone else has written. Each page is devoid of all writing, even devoid of page numbers, but especially devoid of poetry. Instead, each page is filled with the ultimate void. You can’t avoid it. Nor can you void it. This page is good for nothing. Explore this site to learn more about nothing.
