Generally Sponsored Poetry Poll for September 6, 2011

This is the generally sponsored poetry poll for the September 6, 2011 Poetry Fishbowl.  You have $15 to spend.  There are three $15 poems left: "The Dog Guides," "New Eden," and "Spotted."  There are four $10 poems left: "Hawk in the Night," "The Games Pets Play," "The Pet," and "Schrodinger's Human."  There are three $5 poems left: "aquarium science fiction," "Hourglass in the Sand," and "The Rockhound." 

There are also three epics that you could choose to fund: "Restoration" tells how the radiator dragon came to live in Monster House.  ($5 won't reveal a new verse.  $15 would reveal four verses.)  "The Accidental Hero" follows Aldornia and Zenobia when one of Aldornia's relatives unexpectedly appears in the Temple of Golden Light.  ($5 would reveal one new verse.  $15 would reveal seven verses.)  "Igor's Creature" is a mix of horror and science fiction with a large helping of sociology and a wry twist of humor.  ($5 would reveal one new verse.  $15 would reveal two new verses.)

First, choose how to distribute the funds based on poem length.  Next, select the poems you most want to see published.  I will leave this poll open at least until Saturday evening.  If there's a clear winner at that time, I'll close it.  Otherwise I may leave it open a bit longer.
