Round Two of the 2nd Annual March Madness Poetry Tournament (#MMPoetry2013) is in full swing!
Please vote in this round by Tuesday! Here's my flight. (she says hopefully)
Here's the whole live scoreboard.

There's a Superwoman
in my veins!
I'm becoming that crazy woman
at the top of the highest rollercoaster
laughing hysterically for fifty-five minutes!
And then, bleary-eyed in the morning,
wearing my robe and slippers,
finding a severed head
in the vegetable bin
of my refrigerator
next to the iceberg lettuce
when I read my poem
posted for all to see
it doesn't scan
the way it seemed to
