The OPTIONAL theme for May/June is DREAMS. I'm sure none of you has anything to say about them -- (that was a joke). In fact I am a little uneasy about choosing this topic; who knows what demons I'll unleash.
Don't worry if you see a "NOT SECURE" notice next to the URL on the V-V website. Without going into technical details, I will just say that you can ignore this message. It's a complicated thing, but there is absolutely no danger.
To all VV'ers: Please remember to submit poems to V-V every other month or less frequently (except for the contributing editors who contribute every month). I am trying to keep V-V's size down. PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER THAT I ACCEPT SUBMISSIONS ONLY DURING THE FIRST TEN DAYS OF THE MONTH PRECEDING THE ISSUE MONTH -- NOT EARLIER OR LATER.
Have a marvelous April.
