Rejection Letters, belatedly

When, back in August, the journal Rejection Letters accepted two of my poems, I was thrilled. They said the poems would be published on September 29, which I noted in my calendar — on today’s date, October 29. Geez. So here, belatedly, are my two Rejection Letters poems, “The new math” and “At the laundromat with Pablo Picasso.” Thank you Rejection Letters!

Back in July, I posted the good news that my poem “Ornament” had been published in Quartet Journal, Volume 1, Number 3. Here it is late October and Quartet has again honored me by selecting “Ornament” as the feature poem in their new call for submissions, currently appearing on a variety of poetry pages all over Facebook. Thank you again, Quartet Journal!
