Tis already that time. Suggest your favorite pieces from the month of April, be it poetry, lyrics, short stories, novels, or anything from the experimental section! And don't forget to look at our thread-boxes for poetry and prose (even though no one's posted in the prose box in months!).

A few rules to remember:

1. You can't suggest yourself. Don't be that guy, please.
2. Make sure the piece you're suggesting was posted in April.
3. Make sure to provide a link to the piece. Don't just write it down, 'cause I don't want to go hunting for it when I put the spotlight up.

Are we including poems from NaPo, or will that be handled separate?

EDIT:

I know there will be a napo competition, but are we 'spotlighting' them here anyway?

As per the opening rules of every month:

2. Make sure the piece you're suggesting was posted in April.
2. Make sure the piece you're suggesting was posted in April.

I think napo stuff will be kept exclusive to the vote thread. Because there are SO MANY napo poems.

So I guess I'll set the ball rolling? I reckon The joke's on everyone by That's_Fancy should go forward, it's pretty awesome.

EDIT: Given that there haven't been that many posts, I've relooked over April and added these too. Been quite an interesting month, even if there hasn't been much of it.
