poetry for the geographically ghoulish
Started over Halloween 2011, odd parlour is a joint effort between a few Mighty workers.

At select locations in the downtown core, foursquare users are presented with a tip by a mysterious entity known as odd parlour. Within the tip is a link to location-specific poem: written, recorded, and animated by us.

YOGA
Twisted limbs in heaving piles
A flash of pain behind the smiles
Bodies bent beyond belief

With every stroke, they grow their sin
A grinding cog, the pinch of pain
Send power to the Frankenbrain

Stop him quick, before she’s found

It’sless a man, more gory mass
I fear itmay break through the glass
