Of the six poems mentioned in yesterday's post, the editor took three - batting .500 is great - including the one I thought he might not like, & the one I wrote the previous night, & a poem I wrote for this blog on a 4th of July, but not the poem I've been tinkering with for years. But I'm not gonna give up on it. I may have to try the most radical sort of revision I do, rewriting from memory, an adventure since I never memorize poems. But I aways wanted to hire an actor to play me at a poetry reading.
