The NPM giveaway--

The winner of the great poetry giveaway is utopian fragments! And the rest of you, readers or readers-and-poets, thank you for playing. I enjoyed e-meeting you and hope you'll come back again sometime. 

The image at left is from Clive Hicks-Jenkins and is one of the vignettes of collaged, painted papers from Thaliad. At right is one from The Foliate Head.


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
