|SPD's AWP BAD POEM CONTEST|
|1st Prize Winner: Craig Santos Perez|

Every time you think a reader might
pause, perhaps I may revisit thee
no more, as many an exiled.
On the other hand you can agonize
for hours, and in the end
it's a waste of time. But if all else fails,
immortality can always be assured
by a spectacular error. "Blooming"
may turn into an epithet rather than
simply an adjective when I
refer to this thing. Cold steel
circles for use in some Magician's
act. But at least I tried
and that's all I have to say.
