mystery box contest
*** The 3d Mystery Box Contest is now CLOSED -
New Mystery Box! New Format!
Two for One: This box I picked up from a junk shop (a.k.a. "antiques boutique") and low and behold inside of it was another box. The images on the lids of each of these boxes should be inspiring, but as a word of warning: neither are in stellar condition, but the interior box in particular has some damage at the corners. Nevertheless, I fell in love with images, especially the floating bowls on the lid of the smaller box. The larger box is approximately 3"x4", the smaller 2"x3".
The rules are the same as usual: Write a poem inspired by the box. The winner receives the box, plus winner's status and publication in an upcoming issue.
This time around, however, we would like you to post your poem to this page. The contest will remain open until September. While ultimately it will be up to the editors to decide the winner, readers will be able to vote on their favorite poem via a poll on Poemeleon: The Blog, so tell everyone you know to vote! We will take those votes into consideration when making the final call.
