What to Submit?
Write a NEW….NEW…..DATED……DATED…..NEW ….POEM
The Theme/prompt is: PEEKING THROUGH THE KEYHOLE
Any form is acceptable just be true to the form (I check)
Regardless of content I always look for poetic flow and poetic ‘devices’
a “readable” cadence and sharp line breaks. “ing” and “ic” do not constitute a rhyme.
I like those GOTCHA moments, those OH, MAN deep breaths, those
DAMN, I DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING lines.
