KATHI and KRISTEN, you both received a total of three votes from the judges; therefore, the two of you tie for the winning poem of Week 5: The Between.
MICAH and W.F., you are at the bottom this week. One of you received a vote from each of the weekly judges but not the guest judge. The other received a total of two votes. Which was which? Well, it doesn't matter. I suggest both of you write furiously for Week 6. No one is going permanent caesura due to the early dismissal of Martin Ott.
