Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, September 6

This is an advance announcement for the Tuesday, September 6, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. This time the theme will be "pet peeves." I'll be soliciting ideas for nemeses, rivals, jerks, bullies, upstanders, fussbudgets, touch-dominant people, problem-solvers, troubled relationships, brats, high-conflict personalities, supervillains, superheroes, psycho bosses, neatniks, picking on people, finding flaws, laying blame, failure analysis, quality control, schools, businesses, government buildings, households, athletic venues, other areas prone to conflicts, vermin, lack of habituation to stimuli, the stupid it burns like hydrogen, hypersensitivity, touch aversion, allergens, bullshit, dissatisfaction, and poetic forms in particular.

I have a linkback poem, "Thinking River Thoughts" (14 verses, An Army of One). 

If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week.  (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts.  I am now.)  Meanwhile, if you want to help with promotion, please feel free to link back here or repost this on your blog.
