THE DAILY POEM PROJECT, WEEK TEN

Here are the poems to vote for in week ten of my Daily Poem Project (the poems on Poetry Daily from Monday, May 28, to Sunday, June 3):

64. from: The Book of the Dead Man, by Marvin Bell
65. Poplars, by Donald Revell
66. In Another Year of Fewer Disappointments, by Eliza Griswold
67. Inside the Maze (II, III, and IV), by Hadara Bar-Nadav
68. Auroras, by Joanna Klink
69. Ditchdigger, by Liane Strauss
70. Aftermath, by Forrest Hamer

The Rules:

You can send your vote to me by email or as a comment on the blog. If you want to vote by commenting but do not want your vote to appear on the blog, you just have to say so in your comment (I moderate all comments). In any case, I will not post the comments until after the final vote is in (secret ballot). You may vote by the title, the author's name, or the number of the poem in the list above. Please make a final decision and vote for only one poem (although it is always interesting to see people's lists).

Please VOTE BY THURSDAY, JUNE 7! But I will still accept votes as long as I have not posted the final results, which might only be on June 8 or 9.

If you want to receive an email announcing the results, send me your email address with your vote (if you have a public blogger profile, I can usually find it).

Abstaining: If you read the poems but decide that there is no poem that you want to vote for, I would be interested to know that you decided to abstain.

I'm voting for the Maze, with the Fewer Disappointments next and the Poplars third. 68, 69 and 70 failed to pull me in for various reasons (many sonics-related) and although I found 64 interesting, I couldn't pull it together into any kind of an organic whole in the time allotted. I think it deserves a re-visit at some point. My thoughts on the Maze and the Disappointments at A Bundle of Biases.

This is a great idea! Cheers, Nic

I vote for Hadara Bar-Nadav's meditation on the Minotaur. I'm intrigued by animal speakers, or figures that are part animal, part human.--The poem is a bit of a formal experiment, which, I suppose, may have something to do with the maze, and the liminal or fragmented state the Minotaur is in.
