Ongoing contest with rankings, enter a poem every 4 days. Minimum 30 submissions.

Submit a poem now while it's early, it might get hard to score in a month if contestants grow as I predict.

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
- bonus points for nature poetry
- bonus points for social-activism themes

* Do please avoid putting a poem you already put into the rankings.

* Do please avoid signing your name, this is very distracting and is not fair to the anonymity of the contest.

oh and thanks!
