I'm trying to enter a Poetry contest, but I can't figure out which poems to enter. DX

The list is here, and I've sort of got it narrowed down, but...not really.

It took me a month to get a list of 13 from 100+. And I still don't like half of them. >.>;;;

But anyway. I've gotta have this done by the 31st, so... any ideas? OAO

I love Constellation, Outside Love, Die Endlosung, Imaginary, Shipwrecked, Six O'clock Angel and Toy Soldier. All your poems are fabulous in different ways, I'm just a sucker for the bittersweet and slightly discordant notes in these. It reminds me somewhat of Neil Gaiman.

As to the competition, I do not envy you this choice! As I said, I like the offbeat poems, but to give a good all round cover of your skill I'd say
-Constellation
-Die Endlosung
-Toy Soldier
This way you do have a theme for yourself, and it helps to hold your work together. I think Die Endlosung and Toy Soldier go together particularly well.

Also, The Book Thief was amazing! I cried.
