Thanks to a last minute outpouring, a total of sixteen poems were entered by eleven poets. I thank all of them. Poems exist because humans do, but what makes a person a poet is the courage to expose their poems to public view.
The ballot lists the poems in the order in which they were received. Titles provided by the poet are bolded. Where no title was included by the poet the first line (in italics) serves to identify it. I took the liberty to consolidate the three fragments posted by the table is the table as a single poem, in the numeric order specified.
Before voting you may read all the poems entered, immediately following this post. I made an effort to preserve any special formatting used by the poet in the submissions thread, but I may have failed in that effort. In which case, I apologize.
