What kind of poems will rank?

- original explorations of common themes
- bonus points for erotic or spiritual verse
- a good vocabulary
- unexpected endings
- rhyming or decent haiku
- self-important and highly stylized verse
- it must be readable, not too long
- clear, melodic and lyrical
- not too emo or brooding to the point of sounding immature
