Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, July 7, 2009
This fishbowl's prompts trickled in slowly throughout the day. I started at 11:30 AM and worked until 10:00 PM, when the net connection crashed. Allowing for lunch and supper breaks, that's about 9 1/2 hours. I wrote a total of 15 poems, mostly medium and long, one short and two epics. Some were free verse, but I also got two sonnets, another rhymed rhythmic poem, and a couple that were unrhymed and unmetered but had other structural features. Some came from single prompts, some from combinations. They were about evenly split between the dystopic tone of classic cyberpunk and the more optimistic (or silly) tone of post-cyberpunk.

This month, 11 people sent prompts (2 of them outside the main thread). There were 2 first-time prompters: welcome, siliconshaman and robertlyon. There were 28 comments including mine.

The following fishbowl poems have already been posted:
EDIT 7/8/09: Added poems.
"I Have a Sprocket in My Pocket"
"I, Schrodinger"
"The Invocation Protocol"
"The Last of the Ancients"
"Miss Turing Passes the Test"

There will be a generally sponsored poetry poll shortly. Also, remember that "The Sky-Eyes and the Earth-Hearts" is still in the process of being funded and posted verse-by-verse; if you have a few dollars, but not enough for a whole poem, consider sponsoring a verse there.

This month's donors include: ellenmillion, marina_bonomi, and janetmiles. Special thanks to first-time donor marina_bonomi. You folks will get to see a donor perk-post later.
