Poll: Generally Sponsored Poetry for January 8, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl

You have $103.50 in the general fund.  I wrote a bunch more poems; you can see them all listed with their thumbnail descriptions, in the  unsold poetry post.  I'm batching those poems as everything shorter than epic, shorter epics, medium epics, and longer epics for a reason. That relates to how much will fit within the available funds, and how I'm going to present them in hopes of reducing choice paralysis.

Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I will keep it open until at least Saturday night.  If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it.  Otherwise I may keep it open longer.  If necessary I'll do a followup poll later.

These are the sub-epics: There is one $5 poem: "tanegashima." There is one $10 poem: "ARG." There is one $15 poem: "full moon in a western sky." There are three $20 poems: "The Mule Patrol," "Widow's Walk," and "Xenotransvestism."  You can afford to buy ALL of these sub-epics; together they come to $90, which would leave $13 for other poetry.

There are seven shorter epics: "Invisible Lines" ($31), "Language Bodies" ($35), "Oxidizing Agents, Reducing Agents" ($37), "Disembattled" ($39), "One Acquainted with the Night" ($41.50), "Cricket and the Magic Kung Fu Water" ($54), "One Man's Army" ($67).  These you could fit two or three into the $103, depending on which ones you want.  The first three actually fit exactly into $103; other combinations would leave varying amounts for other poetry.

There are three medium epics: "Backup, Try Again" ($92), "Conduct Unbecoming an Officer" ($93), and "The Sweet Sound of Signaling Loreleis" ($93).  You could sponsor any ONE of those in full, with $11 or $10 left over for other poetry.

There is one long epic: "The Integrity Engagement" ($133).  You could sponsor a majority of that and leave it open for microfunding, with $30 more needed to finish it.

Regarding other poetry to soak up leftover funds: There is one poem in microfunding: "Catching in the Rye."  It needs $13.50 to be fully funded.  You also have the option of opening any of the remaining epics for crowdfunding.

In this first poll, you get to pick which block of poetry you want to fund.  For most of those, that will require followup polling to narrow things down.
