Send us your poems! We are committed to publishing online only the best literary verse. Divot seeks fresh imagery and surprising gut-punch lines (metaphorical slaps only:) and we want only literary poetry: no inspirational poetry, and do not send poems that rely soley on abstract language. We prefer poems that will fit on one page.
