    I honestly did not know that. I thought you wrote them all as you typed! I'd have never gotten it.

    Well done!

    My guess:

    1991, summer

    supporting phrases:

    The corn is firm, erect and hermetic
    in darkest Sausalito the pickers hum
    When grapes are squeezed
    But first, to the world; a gardener, an undertaker
    new icy wrens, quietly littering my wet windowsill
    Illness will settle in and then subside
    Find another swimmer
    A warm winter wound has left me hungry ?
    Somehow I am back in 1967.
    c. 1991


    Can I get a bumper sticker for effort?

    TAKE TWO!


    Man, you're a stickler for rules! (Edited)

    1. The t-shirt poems came second since the other poems were about ATT, posted under Tweleve. Technically you wrote the other poems first, in 1991, but they were submitted on Tweleve after ATT poetry made you fine and famous. A trick question in my opinion.

    2. Fall, 1991

    3. Supporting facts:

    The corn is firm, erect and hermetic
    in darkest Sausalito the pickers hum
    When grapes are squeezed
    But first, to the world; a gardener, an undertaker
    new icy wrens, quietly littering my wet windowsill
    Illness will settle in and then subside
    Find another swimmer
    A warm winter wound has left me hungry ?
    Somehow I am back in 1967.
    c. 1991


    I humbly submit my last guess to her highness of holy poetry, her princess of prose.

    IF I am correct, I would like to officially donate my t-shirt to LadyHope. But I'd like that bumper sticker. It'll look FINE on my mini-van! ha ha ha

    Your so sweet Carol! I'm truly grateful but it's seriously unnecessary. You would be the one to win the t-shirt. I myself have given up. How am I to possibly know those exact times in your life bronte? Maybe I'm just not good with the clues. I am tokenless after all.

    Default Spiderman Wins Twleve Shirt & Bumper Sticker

    The ' t-shirt poems' were written in late fall, 1991, sophomore year in college. It is quite amazing to me how this 'little exercise' has proven that I have actually stagnated as a writer, perhaps even declined. It seems I have retained the same imagery, exasperations, and childish wantonness of my college years; I have yet to grow up as an author or individual. So, you see, the joke is really on me.

    The solution, correctly posted first by spiderman, is as follows:

    The difference between the "t-shirt" poems and other verse posted on forum is that the t-shirt poems are 14 years older. They were written in autumn of 1991. 'Imago Dei', all of them.

    Spiderman correctly posted the 'solution' first, and her extra points have won her a bumper sticker (her choice).


    Thank you to all peeps who participated in this exercise...

    best,

    bronte
