The Sixth Daily Poem Project, Week 12 call for votes


Here are the poems to vote for in the twelfth and final week of the sixth Daily Poem Project (the poems on Poetry Daily from Monday, May 17, to Sunday, May 23):

May 23: After Taxes, by Graham Foust (vote only on the first poem)
May 22: Haying, by Deborah Digges
May 21: An Iris Murdoch Reader, by John Drexel
May 20: Starlings, by James Schuyler (vote only on the first poem)
May 19: A Holiday in the Same Place, by Patrick Mackie
May 18: Tramp in Flames, by Paul Farley (vote only on the first poem)
May 17: Adjectives of Order, by Alexandra Teague

HOW TO VOTE: You can send your vote to me by email or as a comment on the blog (or as a comment to my Facebook link to this call for votes). 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). If you want to vote anonymously, that's okay, but please choose some sort of pseudonym so I can keep track of different votes by anonymous voters. 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 SATURDAY, MAY 29! But I will still accept votes as long as I have not posted the final results.

Next week: the final run-off among the 12 weekly winners to determine who wins the overall Sixth Daily Poem Project. (Call for votes to be posted on Sunday, May 30.)

Feel free to pass on this call for votes to anyone who might be interested!

The winner of week one was Trick, by Sam Willetts.
The winner of week two was Ecclesiastes, by Khaled Mattawa.
The winner of week three was To a Jornalero Cleaning Out My Neighbor’s Garage, by Eduardo C. Corral.

Adjectives in Order,
but I loved An Iris Murdoch Reader too (and Starlings too, which was very pithy and clever)

Going with Starlings,but only because it looks like a poem.The other stuff was just prose to me,even uninspiring.
