    Congratulations to all. After reading a few submissions, the geekery turned me off. I remember the winner because it had an honest-to-gods metaphor (simile), which surprised me. Usually geeks and poetics don’t mix. Verse, yes, since most verse is clever and gimmicky; but poetry, not so much, too many big words and abstractions. Poetry is things. Wonderful things.

    ”…my fingers find you like candlelight” is very nice.

    I was excited all weekend, it was great!

    Wonderful job.
