    Sorry to ask again.
    I ordered 3 copies of the anthology, they charged my credit card on 7 Dec for the books and EXPRESS international shipping.
    I cannot find a contact e-mail address on the site and there is no history that I can see of them sending anything.
    Anyone have ideas?
    Clicking on the various help and contact buttons gets no contact e-mail facility.
    I am getting frustrated.

    Well, in the hopes there can be peace found among the people here on poemhunter and we don't see Round 2 of the infamous Poet Wars............I'd like to post a poem from a wise poet (AJS) and hope we can all enjoy this site (and world) in peace alongside eachother.

    A Poem For Peace

    How many war's, make a right
    Can i have a belief
    Without a war
    Is my god any different then your's
    Do i have to kill a man
    Who doesn't believe, what i believe
    Did jesus kill for his god
    Would a muslim kill a man
    Who had no god
    Would a man pray in the street
    If he had no church
    I have a right, as a human being
    To be free
    To live in a world, free of war
    So do the children of the world
    So we ask for peace

      Andrew beat me to it, though I hasten to add that Mary is known for her covert ad hominem attacks. She will appear in the dark of night at your window, covered by a white sheet, face like Caspar the f ... more

      Collette looks after this site, not me. Why write anti-war poems when you're so offensive yourself? Hypocrite.

    Remember the anthology, guys?
    It looks BEAUTIFUL!
    Now to read it!

    The only thing missing from a 'real book' was an ISBN, and maybe a few 'blurbs' on the back.
    Nice, work, Lori and everyone!
    I'm surprised no one else's has come yet. How weird.

    there could be a practising magician on site who keeps removing material that could make the person receiving the said material look less intelligent
    it must be the termintor employed by the razor gang

    I posted a poem this evening, 'Bonhoeffer's Slippers, ' and I wanted to draw attention to it because of its timely subject matter. If you have time, give it a read. I'm not really soliciting criticism; I just want to share it, for what it's worth. Danke.

    this place has really been acting strange lately. broken links, blank pages... i'm backing up my poems tonight just in case PH crashes and burns. i remember Lenchen Elf, god bless, told me that this website had crashed once before causing everybody to lose everything they posted. a bit of friendly advice to the greener Hunters out there.

    (from NPR's 'Fresh Air', a '95 interview re-broadcast the other day)
    So honest and real! About ms, among other things. With hilarious comedy snippets at beginning and end.
    I don't think I ever heard Teri Gross speechless before.
