“I wanted to show people they were poets. That they had phenomenal poetry inside them, waiting to be discovered in the beauty of their own thoughts.”

Damian Jay Clay, better known on the Writers’ Block as BigBadBear or 3B, has a knack for turning the mundane statements of other Block members into poetry. The poems, of course, belong to the person who did the original writing. He asks only that he be credited for his editing. Here are some examples of the fun. We recommend you keep an eye on the #editedbyclay and #unintendedpoet tags.
