Double Blind time again!

I am asking for poems about buildings, sounds a bit dry but could be interesting anything from barns to whore houses! Looking at them, what they are for, what happened there? Even being them, what has your building seen? Murder? Romance? Plotting? Is it evil or just a plain much loved family home, somewhere you long to return to?
If you're unfamiliar with this sort of Challenge this is what you do.
Send me your poem via my Inbox, starting from now until November 22nd. After that I will start posting the poems anonymously in another thread and your fellow poets will comment on each poem and guess who wrote what. I will give you a list of who has actually taken part and after a few days I will then reveal which author goes with which poem.
Any questions ask in here and any revisions to your poems send to me. If you get behind on your writing I will accept poems after 22nd November as long as you warn me it's on it's way and before I put up a list of participating poets.
You do not have to send a poem to participate in the comments and guessing.
Old poems (or revisions of) are acceptable as long as they fit the subject.

The first one, when GM started it, he had us post the revisions ourselves at the end, which served as the reveal, I think. After that, Mer and I have posted them for the challenges we hosted. Either way or not at all is fine, of course. I was just clarifying.

Good for him! Hope you're feeling better very soon. Bronchitis can seem to go on and on. Nasty stuff.

What I'll do is post the entries on November 23rd and open it up for guesses and critiques, then give the authors a few days to either resubmit their poems or tell me they don't want to change them, Then they'll go up again with names attached. Is that OK?

That will give me plenty of time to savage each one.



And catch Lyricalli before she hits the floor.

Does the guessing and critiquing go on this thread, or the one with the poems?
