Poll: General Fund for March 18 Fishbowl
This is the general fund poll for the March 18, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl.  Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I will keep it open until at least Monday night.  If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it.  Otherwise I may leave it open a little longer.

There was a $4 donation from janetmiles.  We're currently out of open epics.  In the interest of getting off to a good start with a fresh one, I'm adding $10 to the kitty in thanks for all the typo-spotting that thnidu has been doing for me.  So that's $14 with which to open a new epic from the options listed below.

There are currently 8 epics available from this fishbowl session that don't have prerequisites for posting.  Thumbnails for these appear in the unsold poetry post.  I'm also throwing in "Pulling Pigtails" from earlier, because it's a prerequisite for "Peace Offerings" which has already been sponsored and is on hold.

With such a long list, I'm going to use checkboxes instead of radio buttons for this poll.  You can vote for all the poems you want to see published, instead of just one.  I'll try to shake out the most popular one from that.

"Amateur Night" -- 216 lines, $108
Damask and Farce meet on Halloween.

"Collateral Damages" -- 158 lines, $79
In this direct sequel to "Buttoned Up," Damask helps clean up after the disaster -- but they're not alone.

"Heroic Physics 101" -- 130 lines, $65
Granny Whammy teaches a class about how superpowers work.

"A Nice Little Racket" -- 228 lines, $114
Dr. Infanta returns in this creepy-sweet poem about organized crime.

"A Sense of Power" -- 156 lines, $78
Superpowers often entail perceiving the world in very different ways from the ordinary.

"Shit What You Don't Need" -- 144 lines, $72
In this sequel to "The Family Business," Coby lists some barriers to a happy life.

"Simple as a Glass of Chocolate" -- 85 lines, $42.50
Señora Cocoa has superpowers that aren't related to combat, but to comfort.

"The Tallest Poppy" -- 150 lines, $75
Savoir Faire interrupts a pack of bullies at their sport.

"Pulling Pigtails" -- 83 lines, $41.50 (prerequisite for "Peace Offerings")
Supervillains rarely express themselves in healthy ways, but there are exceptions to every rule.

Recommendation (if you read the comments before voting)

It looks to me like "Amateur Night" is a sequel to "Who Laughs Last", which is the poem Elizabeth published in the previous post. As a prompter, I got to read it and really enjoyed it.

Re: Recommendation (if you read the comments before voting)

Yes, "Amateur Night" comes after "Who Laughs Last." I got several poems this week about Damask and Farce interacting. Their relationship is getting a lot more complex over time.

Thanks for the input on what you've read!
