Generally Sponsored Poetry Poll for October 2008 Fishbowl

Okay, folks, this one is going to be a circus. Out of the 23 poems I wrote yesterday, 3 have already been published here. The remaining 20 are ALL eligible. There is one $5 poem: "The Wax Wife." There are ten $10 poems: "The Cackling of Crones," "Eviction, Noticed," "Masking the Light," "Second Date Data," "Signal to Noys," "SKPA in San Francisco," "Three-Faced," "Tunnel Revision," "Under the Bed," and "What I Miss the Most." There are eight $15 poems: "Evil Fruit," "Fly Away Home," "The Hungry Organ," "If the Slipper Fits," "The Mummy Child," "Nightmares For Sale SOLD," "Playing the Bones," and "The Spectres Ahead." There is one $20 poem: "In the Glass."

With $48 in general donations, you have a vast array of options, so I'm just going to list all the poems individually. I had to break them into two questions this time, so the $5 poem and the $10 poems are in the first question, and the $15 poems and the $20 poem are in the second question. (You can spread your votes across both questions if you wish, there just wasn't room to cram everything into one question.) This month's donors -- dakiwiboid, dulcinbradbury, minor_architect, janetmiles, and je_reviens -- may each vote for a total of FIVE poems. Other audience members may each vote for a total of THREE poems. Later I'll look at the results and compare them to the available funds, then see if that produces a final combination of poems to publish. If necessary I can do a tie-breaker poll or something.
