Old Master's Page Slam Match

I've been running 'old masters of poetry' Page Slams at GotPoetry. The above is an example where out of Poe, Sharon Olds, Gwendolyn Brooks, Galway Kinnel, ee cummings, Kunitz, Shilverstein, Maya Angelou and 8 members of GP, Angelou is about to win. (Psst. You can still vote even if you're not a member.) I find it really interesting that her poem 'The Lesson' is beating Sharon Olds 'One Year' by so much.
