(Note: technically anyone can enter because anyone can join the group. So if you simply join the group, you can submit to your hearts content... which coincidentally ends at 2 submissions).

To sum it up... decadence is the love of decay... beautiful decay.
1. A process, condition, or period of deterioration or decline, as in morals or art; decay.
2. often Decadence A literary movement especially of late 19th-century France and England characterized by refined aestheticism, artifice, and the quest for new sensations.

For examples... refer to Oscar Wilde's poem "Symphony in Yellow" or the wikipedia article...

Basically... I want you to write a poem with a decadent flare. Spelling and grammar matter as well, but as long as it's decadent... submit away! (2 poems each).


A pretty ribbon, pride, bragging rights, and a nice review!
