Contest Description

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.

 

Prizes

Multiple placements - at descretion of contest sponsor
