Unsold Poems from the May 7, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl
The following poems from the May 7, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl are currently available. Poems 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 linkback perk poem, "The Voyage to Vaucouleurs," still has several verses left.  You can reveal a new one by linking to this post or to a favorite poem from this month's fishbowl.

"The 12 Days of Fantasia" -- 17 lines, $10
This of course turned into a parody, "The 12 Days of Fantasia." I wrote out the first two verses and then just listed the changing lines.

"Balance and Tangle" -- 12 lines, $10
Your prompts inspired the free-verse poem "Balance and Tangle." It deals with expected and unexpected opposites.

"Irony of Eight" -- 108 lines, $54 (One God's Story of Mid-Life Crisis)
From this I got the free-verse poem "Irony of Eight." Zargon shows up with a lesser demon and interrupts Glenta's housework. You can see how this is not going to end well.

"Spathic Personalities" -- 11 lines, $10
Your prompt led to the free-verse poem "Spathic Personalities," about the cleavage properties of souls.

"That Is the Question" -- 11 lines, $10
The prompt about bees inspired the free-verse poem "That Is the Question." It considers the impact of bee deaths on humanity.

Is there a time limit on these? I know I want the last two... if I can wait until Wednesday and no one else claims it, I'm also interested in Irony of Eight...

There are two factors here.

1) I run the tally for the Poetry Fishbowl through Friday night, and usually close it Saturday morning. That is what determines the perks. So far, we're at $140 in donations, which meets the $100 threshold for a free $15 poem. $150 is the threshold for a free $20 poem and $200 for a free epic. I only wrote $217.50 worth of poetry this month because the prompt activity was low. So unless somebody drops a big chunk in the general fund, the other perks aren't coming.

2) If you want to reserve poems to fund later based on your budget, you can. I can hold them for you like I've done for other folks. They just won't count toward the perks.

Let me know what you want to do. I appreciate your support any way you slice it.
