Unsold Poetry from the January 17, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl
This fishbowl has SOLD OUT.  Thank you for your support!

The following poems from the January 17, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl are currently available. They may be sponsored via PayPal -- there's a permanent donation button on  my LiveJournal profile  page -- or you can write to me and discuss other methods
.  The Poetry Fishbowl also has a  landing page  with full details about the project.

Note that as of 1/19/12, there are only two poems in microfunding, so any one of the epics could be opened for that.

"Cups and Coins" -- 87 lines, $43.50 SOLD
From your prompt about Fiorenza thinking of her future, I got the free-verse poem "Cups and Coins." Gypsies come to the village, and Fiorenza gets her fortune told, which leads her thoughts in a very distracting direction.

"The Godfather" -- 106 lines, $53  SOLD
I like stories about Death but I think he gets the short end too often. So "The Godfather" takes a different direction, in which Don Candido is respectful of the gifts he is given, and Fiorenza learns some new things about the priest.

"Marchesa Micia" -- 90 lines, $45SOLD
From the cat prompt I got the free-verse poem "Marchesa Micia," also somewhat inspired by the Italian version of "Puss in Boots." A talking cat comes to Fiorenza's village, but she happens to be mostly black, and people aren't keen on that.

"A Princely Abode" -- 143 lines, $71.50SOLD
From your prompt about frogs, I got the free-verse poem "A Princely Abode." A prince transformed into a frog asks Fiorenza to kiss him, but since she isn't a princess, clearly something else will have to be done about this.

"Tabagnino and the Beanstalk" -- 14 lines, $10 SOLD
The prompt about magic beans turned into the sonnet "Tabagnino and the Beanstalk." A young man who isnota hero brings home some trouble ...

"Three Brothers and a Bull" -- 24 lines, $10 SOLD
From the prompt about rudeness vs. politeness I got the terza rima "Three Brothers and a Bull." Some things are more trouble than they're worth, and our favorite herbalist has little patience for fools.

"To Its Own End" -- 251 lines, $125.50SOLD
Yes, griffins will return to the same territory. When they do, some people are glad to see them, others not so much. Don Candido and Fiorenza get caught up in the ensuing ruckus. The result is "To Its Own End," a free-verse poem.
