The January 6, 2015 Poetry Fishbowl made its $200 goal, so you get a free epic. Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll. I will keep it open until at least Wednesday afternoon. If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it. Otherwise I may leave it open a little longer.
In the Leningrad Zoo,
a stray cat slipped through the bars
into the enclosure of a European Lynx
in search of something to eat.
Instead of attacking the interloper,
the lynx delicately sniffed noses,
greeting in the universal language of felines
this tiny stranger from afar.
From that moment they were inseparable.
Sometimes it is possible to find
such transcendent friendships
as can surpass the bounds
of size, shape, species
