HOW TO VOTE: 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 on my blog). I will post comments as they come in. (If you want to vote anonymously on the blog, please sign your vote with some sort of pseudonym, so that I can keep track of the various anonymous voters more clearly.)
Please make a final decision and vote for only one poem (although it is always interesting to see people's lists).
Please VOTE BY FRIDAY, MAY 15! But you can still vote as long as I have not posted the results, which I will do by Sunday, May 17, at the latest. When I post the results of week 12, I will also post the call for votes for the final round, with all the winners (and co-winners) of the twelve weeks.
