Congratulations to Diana Manister for her second Cleave of the Month.

These are the Editor’s picks for this month – in selecting, I have considered the following 4 points and also simply, do I like the poem?

  3. Communication: Is it clear; does it communicate?
  4. Experimentation: Is it pushing the envelope?

Here are the poems (Poll closes 12th December):
