I've thoroughly enjoyed watching MMPoetry unfold.  Being on the spectating end, it all looks like marvelous, effortless genius.  I can only imagine what it is like every night, trying to generate a masterpiece with that intense deadline (especially with words like "commensurate" or  "heuristic"!!).  :eek5 Amazing poets! :clapping

Don't forget to vote in the final! One of my crit partners, Buffy Silverman, is in it with 'gargoyles.' She did such a fantastic job with that word, I am in awe. Check it out!

Hi, CArrie, I already voted for her incredible poem and I too am in awe of her ability; loved her next to last poem too, about the sea turtles. Would like to go back and read all of her contest poems but don't know how to do  that.

Carol, here are Buffy Silverman's other words from MM. They are listed on the right under each round.

Round 1, otherwise; 2, sandwiched; 3, vaunted; 4, paunch; 5, ignominious

Enjoy!
