Just four more days until the bidding ceases for Ivy's Poison!

And the current bid has moved up to


My goal is to have someone bump it up to at least $60. Proceeds go to Nothing But Nets which buys life-saving mosquito nets for families in Africa. Each net costs $10. Malaria, if you don't know, kills more than a million kids a year. Let's make true this saying: "Poetry saves lives."

Thanks to the poets -- around the world! -- who's participated to date in this modest auction. It's a modest effort, but Poetry surely facilitates small gestures of intimacy. Hope there's more auction action in the next four days. Bids are taken until this Friday, July 27, and may be emailed to GalateaTen@aol.com.

Good morning!
