But for the Nightly poet portion of the contest, we're doing PMs this time. PM me your votes. I swear to keep all votes confidential and won't even tell my best friends who voted what. And I have no problem with you guys voting for yourselves, there is no shame in that. I've voted for myself more than once along the way. So go for it.
Vote for your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers. Every first place vote will earn a poem 5 points, every second place vote earns 3 points, and every 3rd place vote earns 1 point. The poem with the most points wins the contest. It's just that easy.
Voting Deadline: Wed, May 16th, 11pm EST
The list of entries and authors. (if I overlooked someone [as I almost did with Chatham because he talked a little before providing the link and so I almost missed it] please for the love of God mention it and link here ASAP. But I think I got everyone. And NO voting for my poem, it's not eligible! )
We knew but we denied it ...
aaaand mine is done: between two breaths
