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.

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, MARCH 20! But I will still accept votes as long as I have not posted the final results. (March 22 at the latest.)

The winner of week one was Sherod Santos, Film Noir.
The winner of week two was Edward Field, Cataract op.
The winner of week three was David Bottoms, A Chat with My Father.

John Casteen: Chain Song, mainly on account of my nephew was bitten while landing a sevengill off Oakland last year.

On a Pose of Virgil's

I go with Fairchild, even though I wouldn't count this poem among his most memorable. Chain Song had some exhilarating language, but was a trainwreck rhythmically.

I'm not voting for any of them.

David Schloss – The Myth.
I also appreciated B.H. Fairchild – On the Waterfront very much.

I'm going to pass this week, too.

I've re-read them all several times, and none of them comes through to me in an especially strong way. I can rule out 2 or 3 of them, but can't seem to find anything to base a positive choice on among the others.
