One word: Bloodbath. "Sheep in Fog" and "Balloons" obliterated their challengers. Poor "Years" was left, like "Words", 'dry and riderless'. "Years", I'm sorry, but everyone "can tell what [you] lack": votes. "Candles" torched "Parliament Hill Fields" (something Guy Fawkes didn't even get to see) but the other competitions were all ties. How interesting!
Round 3 features some really interesting match-ups. "Black Rook and Rainy Weather" versus "Poem for a Birthday" and "Candles" versus "Three Women". I don't know how "Sheep in Fog" versus "Balloons" will turn out; and "Thalidomide" versus "The Rabbit Catcher" offers Plath at her best.

Thanks to those that voted!
Round 4 will be posted on Saturday with the finals appearing Sunday. Also on Sunday, I will start serializing a forthcoming novel about Sylvia Plath and so much more.
