rejection in one of it’s many unpleasant forms

December 15, 2006

As promised in the biweekly newsletter (if you’re not a subscriber, feel free to drop an email to bigwordsmailbag@yahoo.com with the subject heading ‘subscribe’, here’s a poem from the upcoming Breathing Room collection.  I’m also posting a new essay up on YourHub.com, so follow the leader and pop over there when you get a chance as well!

rejection in one of it’s many unpleasant forms

we regret to

inform you

that your submission

does not fit our

needs at this

time.

we wish you

the best of

luck in

placing your work

elsewhere.

your needs?

i have needs

too.

i need more

money

to fritter away

on foolish things.

i need publishing

credits

to feed my hungry

ego.

i need frequent

reassurances

that my work

is valued

and entertaining.

i wish you

the best of luck

in placing your

head

in your ass.
