I think Dog's poem about his sleeping friends is the best. A better question is who's poem is better, Snow's or Acker's?Let the two up and comers go at it. They're both on Plum's Best Of List. I'm going Snow here.

    adams got more music, but god its so sappy and cliched, its hard to give him the nod. acker's is just dull in language, but i may have to give him the edge in content, he's saying something (sort of) interesting. but both, language-wise are bad poems, typical work from amateurs; cliched. no getting around relying on cliches, its always bad
