This poem came out of the April 7, 2009 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from haikujaguar. It has been selected in an audience poll as the free epic for the June 5, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl reaching the $200 goal. This poem belongs to the series The Odd Trio; you can find the other poems through the Serial Poetry page.

June was the third month of reaching the $250 goal, so you get a bonus Poetry Fishbowl featuring a particular series. Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll. It will be open for several days, probably until midweek.
Which series should get the bonus fishbowl?
The poll for the bonus fishbowl is now open.
Due to family circumstances, I'll be unavailable for several days. My tentative plan at this point is to hold the half-price poetry sale toward the middle of June, and set the bonus fishbowl for the middle of July. I'll pick some other perk for the slot usually held by the half-price sale for July. That would keep shopping opportunities from stacking up too much. I expect to be available again at the middle or end of the week. I'll figure out more details then, and give you an update accordingly.
