Old Master's Page Slam Match

I've been running 'old masters of poetry' Page Slams at GotPoetry. http://www.gotpoetry.com/Page_Slam/op=running/gid=157.html 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.
