Okay, so I'm trying to teach myself InDesign in order to render the aubergine anthology with the insouciant beauty that it deserves. For the record, I'm listing all the participants one more time:
Tim Botta, "Fried Flowers of Aubergine"

Geof Huth, "White with Winter"
Mark Lamoureux, "Aubergine"
Scott McDonald, "Aubergine Haiku"
Catherine Meng, "DOCUMENT 19 one riff short"
K. Silem Mohammed, "Truck Waffles"
Daniel Nester, "I'll Have You (Club Mix)"
Katey Nicosia, "Mad Apple"
Gary Norris, "An Egg Plant"
*Anthony Robinson, "Obligatory five minute sonnet on unrequited something"
Michael Schiavio, "Before Gabriel Blows His Horn"
Matthew Shindell, "Aubergine"
Laurel Snyder, "Poem which can end in no ending but this ending"
*Adam Strauss, "[Last semester I'd said I'd roast Aubergines]"

Mark Yakich, "To My Young British Poets"
*Tim Yu, "Poem: To Americans Abroad"
Although I have included a few poems (marked by an asterisk) that don't actually end in the word "aubergine," that really was the idea and I reserve the right to exclude them if space doesn't permit or what have you. Though it's not too late to revise, if you have a mind.
