Surfeit

Help! I'm drowning in an overabundance of poems!
Love poems, breakup poems
Funny poems, sad poems
Maudlin poems, corny poems
Good poems, bad poems, atrocious poems!

   Poems   Phe-phe-phe-phe-phe-POEMS!

Because everyone wants to be a steeeeenkin' POET!

But

what I really want

is

    * * * prose * * *

Short stories, essays, creative nonfiction

A prose by any other name would smell as sweet
O, I would love some red, red prose
Proses red and proses white
I've a pretty Prose Tree



So, uhm, yes, I'm editing Dagmay this week and there's not enough prose in the queue.

Help?
