    I think it may depend on the journal magazine. Soup is a community, not a journal, magazine or publication. It says, "we do not consider self-publishing to personal blogs, message boards, or Facebook as publication" Debs, definition of a message board is as follows: 1. an Internet site where people can post and read messages, usually on a specific topic or area of interest. Ummm... isn't that Poetrysoup? The poems here have not passed by an editor, were not selected for publication here. I think, in THIS case, due to the uppercrust nature of this magazine they would not consider Poetrysoup anything other than a writer's group.

    Thanks for introducing Mrs Patricia Smith! She's great and I'm going to try to find her books in my library. Also, I'm going to study this poem (a masterpiece!) Just to learn and understand how she did it. PS: ... maybe ... maybe ... maybe ... you never know. : D

    here is a dare. ANYONE Take the first two sonnets of this... and BREAK/them DOWN/ for ME/so I/CAN see/the ME-TAR cause I don't see it... the first is 10/10/10/10/11/9/10/8/9/9/10/10/10--Here's what I think. Meter happens in normal speech.. unplanned. If I say, "exCUSE me BUT i HAVE to GO to the POT-tea... it ain't meter. It's just words.. if someone wants to slap a great line onto a coroner's table and cut it apart, go for it. and of course I won't penalize a verse FOR NATURAL OCCURENCE OF NORMALIZED SPEECH PATTERNS (each word very stressed, here) But if I hear.. "Oh, the ROSE is RED and BLEEDS with WILL.. yeah, I GOT A WHIFF OF METER. If dont' want intentional sing songing. Sigh.

    Really good metered sonnet ;) ;) The 'teacher I had was a Pushcart winner' seems as if that's one of the big awards in poetry

    From Wikipedia "Heroic crown An advanced form of crown of sonnets is also called a sonnet redoublé or heroic crown, comprising fifteen sonnets, in which the sonnets are linked as described above, but the final binding sonnet is made up of all the first lines of the preceding fourteen, in order. This form was invented by the Siena Academy, which was formed in 1460, but there are no existing crowns of sonnets written by them. The form was first described by Giovanni Mario Crescimbeni in his work L'Istoria della volgar poesia (History of Vernacular Poetry), published in Venice, 1731 and later by P.G. Bisso in his Introduzione alla volgar poesia (Introduction to Vernacular Poetry)

    Wow, the last sonnet is composed of all the first lines of the preceding sonnets! A crown squared!

    This is crazy good! Wait, the word "good" is completely inadequate to describe this dazzling poem. No offense to us Soupers(lol), but I haven't been reading anything nearly as well-written or exciting(yes, EXCITING is a key word)on the newly posted poems list
