Oh Lord...

So back in college, I wrote a poem. I later submitted said poem to a poetry anthology and it got published.

Now, I have been informed that said poem is online and can be rated.

Apparently, if you get 20 votes and the highest average that day you win a fabulous prize.

I voted 10 because I really enjoyed that and it makes me homesick for spring in Minneapolis :)

I'm not going to lie: I ranked it at 10 because you're my friend and I'll do what I can to help you win something.

Poetry is something I've always struggled with. I just can't wrap my head around the stuff. Sections on poetry were always the difference between an A and a B for me during college, because I always performed so poorly when we analyzed it.

I understand that there's some kind of deeper meaning and rich subtext to everything, but I can't see it to save my life. It's not from over-analyzing, and it's not from looking too shallow. I can't explain it; I simply just don't understand how it works.

It's frustrating, really. But since I can avoid it now, I don't worry about it too much. Either way, congrats on getting published and now ranked :D

I think I remember being in a poetry class with you.... I think I also remember an unprecedented amount of bitching on the way back to Middlebrook...

:) Thanks Dominator.
