Poll: Generally Sponsored Poetry for August 20, 2013

This is the generally sponsored poetry poll for the August 20, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl.  You have $40 to spend.  Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I will keep it open until at least Friday evening.  If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it.  Otherwise I may leave it open a little longer.

There are four poems currently available from this session, as two of the unsold ones have prerequisites.  (Once "Crystal Wings" is posted, "Bottled Sun" will become available, and "The Distillation of Senses" similarly unlocks "Winestains.")  "Jump Lines" could be funded in full, or any of other three opened for microfunding.

"Crystal Wings" -- 127 lines, $63.50
This inspired the free-verse poem "Crystal Wings." Glenta mistakes a bottle angel for a bottle demon, and tries to smash it. Bottle angels deal in the good things that can be done with fermented beverages, such as you mentioned.

"The Distillation of Senses" -- 107 lines, $53.50
This prompt led to the free-verse poem "The Distillation of Senses."  Shaeth wonders what the artist and the minstrel are doing in his temple when neither of them are drunks.

"Jump Lines" -- 80 lines, $40
From your prompt about Glenta meeting Eshne came the free-verse poem "Jump Lines." Eshne starts over as a chandler making candles for the God of Drunks, but it takes a while to figure out all the necessary tools and supplies.

"Outdated Directory" -- 108 lines, $54
From a prompt by my_partner_doug I got the free-verse poem "Outdated Directory." A mage summons Shaeth, not realizing that he is no longer God of Evil.

There are also two open epics.  "Picking and Pecking" needs $67.50 to be fully funded.  "Landfather" needs $72.50 to be fully funded.
