Poetry Fishbowl Report for August 4, 2015

This month's theme was "friendship, kinship, and families of choice." I worked from 12 PM to 6:15 AM, so about 16 hours 15 minutes, accounting for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 10 poems on Tuesday and another 6 later.

Participation was a little lower, with 18 people leaving prompts. None of them were new.
