Two poets with wildly different styles, to be sure.  Master of the macabre vs. Mistress of abstract.  Structure vs. chaos.  Prose vs. metaphor.  Can you deftly combine the two styles to come up with something magical?  Only the shadow knows... BUWAHAHAHAHHA

best thing to do is go to famous poets, pull up Poe and read top 5 poems, then go to Pllath and do the same. the poem should have a Poe edge written in Plath style (hint, she uses a ton of metaphor and other poetic devices)

my dream baby would have infinite honorable mentions, handing out one rose for every ones best intentions, filling the lower terrain with token praise~so maybe one day this encouragement ablaze-i like seeing seedlings grow and blossom-instead of being shunned and forgotten~my dream baby wants to poke fun under the sun~letting light accentuate the dark to give those a run`

i know if contests were diluted~ with so many winners saluted~there would be no hot dogs to roast~for all the losers get a toast~so what is so wrong with that allay~to see 1-35 roses in a bouquet~ i agree the majors add intrigues~but why snub your noses at the ones in the beer leagues-there should be some contest for fun~with infinite placements and critiques, mocking none~

There can only be 1 winner in a true contest connie, otherwise it's, well, not really a contest, is it? A good sponsor should thank each entrant (individually or collectively via a blog) but if ya don't win ya just gotta suck it up. Remember spelling bees in grade school? Winners. Losers. Sports? Winners. Losers. Elections? Winners. Losers. It's just the way it is...

Sylvia's mother says Sylvia is happy so why don't you leave her alone, and the operator says forty cents more for the next three minutes...

haha, just the other day I saw someone trying to remember that old line on a tv show and could not remember how it ended. "so why don't you leave her alone" Now you have given me the answer. It was a cool song!!

somewhere there's a bump in the log that thinks they're red woods~for here's a kickers to ferret the snickers~how are algorithm figured in~when I've seen some poems in the top 100, POTD, with said poems that have few views and the poet turning comments off~what calculations take a walk among the redwood's double talk~

Someone needs to take a chainsaw to the top one hundred best list I agree. It's a weird and seemingly random selection of curiosities. Jus sayin!
