What to Submit?
1 original, poem on the theme of real poetry.
I am NOT interested in patterened dishes, odes to dead celebreties, your pink poodle, etc. Move me, make me feel, AND UNDERSTAND, what it is that impassions you about that subject. If you are still not sure what I mean read a couple of poems on Poetry Soup by F. J. Thomas; that is not a solicitation, you do not have to leave any comments.
Leave foul language and x-rated material out. Intimate feelings can be expressed without describing certain body parts. No texting abbreviations; use real words dangit!
