ISO Poems on Collecting

I wish I collected something interesting enough for a poem, but "Ode to Clutter" doesn't sound promising:

Call for Submissions for New Poetry Anthology on Collecting

Muse with us about the why and how of what we collect. Proposed anthology looking for poems that draw us out of the expected and into the anthropology of collecting: Take us from the universe of small things to universal themes. Dazzle us!

bottle of dress buttons
santos or bultos
spongeware bowls
basket of mushrooms
heirloom seeds
microscopes and maps
dreams & stars
pioneer diaries

Please send up to 3 poems, each no longer than 32 lines, with a 3-5 line bio and SASE, to A. Watson, P.O. Box 370627, Denver, CO 80237.
