Slow, but Busy Week
The kids at school are preparing for exams. In poetry class, they all finished their Shakespeare Monkey submissions on conflict. Now they are revising their aquarium themed poems for Fuselit. I also submitted to both magazines-no word yet on either submission. I've been polishing my poem "Almost Saved by Gutsmuth's Bell". The whole burying a person while he or she is still alive rather creeps me out a bit. I ordered John Amen's new book and just received Thirst(by Mary Oliver) in the mail today. One rejection,Southern Humanities, came this week. Have you written poetry today?
