condom

(3/23 , 1997)



FIRST PLACE


      next to her lipstick
      rose petals
      and condoms
                               Hilary Tann 


SECOND PLACE


         falling from her purse
         lottery tickets -
         and condoms
                                  Mark Alan Osterhaus


THIRD PLACE


               suddenly he knows
               why his parents kept balloons
               beneath their pillows
                                                       Charles Trumbull


BELOW THIRD PLACE


      lost in the dark:
      giggling, she drops
      the condom
                             Lee Hauser


         gaunt young man
         with visual aids
         lectures on condoms
                                               Joann1125


               tired of renting?
               restored condom
               for sale, cheap
                                            Joseph Kirschner


         safe sex with me
         whole body condom
         or zip your pants
                                         Patricia A. Laurent


               spring evening -
               he checks the date
               on his wallet condom
                                                      -acm


      drizzle outside
      he takes an umbrella
      and three condoms
                                         Ted Zachwieja


               thin wall
               the distance between us
               condom
                                Yu Chang


      astonished -
      three young boys measure
      a used condom
                                  Neca


                  secluded duck pond:
                  in the tall clover
                  condoms thick as bumblebees
                                                                       Sara Brant


   what sort of condoms?
   ticklerHer, trojan, latex?
   sweltering hot nights
                                           Loran John Hayden
