submitting poetry to big(ger) publications.
here’s to waiting 6+ months to see if one, or both will be published in the new yorker.
the thing that sucks isn’t the waiting, in fact, that’s the best part because i forget completely and therefore all attachment dissolves. the thing that sucks is that i sent them two poems i ended up really, really loving and want to put them into my poetry book, which i might publish before they reject me. and then those two gems are left behind.
then again, i could just keep accumulating more work until then, it depends.
the novel is taking center stage in my time and attention lately anyway.
