Could poets be persuaded to start a single thread each for a collection of their poems?

Example: if I had a handful of poems (don't worry, I haven't) I could start a thread entitled 'Berenike's Poetry Collection' and put all my existing and future poems in there.

I wouldn't want to see a writer's work getting lost amongst any comments received so perhaps each poet could use a coloured font for their poems.

Something else that might be handy is any threads containing a single poem could have [Poem] in the title to make them easily distinguishable from short stories. After all nobody objects to doing something similar for the story competitions.

Anyway, just trying to be helpful and avoid staff having to decide on the merits of individual poems every time a thread is started.

You mean like this?

I know it's in CW, but such threads can exist here in SS as well.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to remind you what a great moderator you are,
This issue ruffled a lot of feathers it seems,but you have managed this affair with grace.

Thanks, meathead.

I've a lot of respect for the creative instinct in not only our membership, but out in the world as well. If there is anything which makes our lives bearable, it is art in its many forms.

Darkness grooms the night
Savage in nature
It claws it's way
Into the area
Of Life

Chasing me
Cornered by it's trance
I fell into oblivion
Now i see
The Truth it held

Finality in all
It's glorified tales
What we're fed
This infinite end
We endure together

False roots bear rotten fruit,
Yet you continue too refuse the truth,
And gorge until you puke,
While you kneel In your pew,
Praying for a clue,
Your angle remains obtuse,
So you repeat the abuse,
On the level,
There can be no above without below,
And the devil,
Is the adversary,or the oar that you row,
Your WILL is the boat,
So you can simply sink,
Or strive to stay afloat.

Seething hateful angry stench
Watching closely bastard wretch
Damning evil angry man
Worm you are from
Potters hell
Seething like a demon
From the depths of
Your own imagination
You spew upon those who
identify not with your
Dankened crude ideals
Deceit it falls from your
lips like dripping honey
on a dark and vile
anger ridden night.
Goodnite sweet prince
goodnite Spew no more
upon me thou tatter
feathered shilandie.
