notes on rejections
almost there, but no
not quite, not these, so close
top ten percent
really tempting, but I'm gonna have to pass
focus more on language, less on story

addresses the theme, but so what

sorry. im sorry. sorry. we're sorry
try again, keep on submitting, the theme of our next issue is failure
and it seems like you might have a lot of poems about that.
