Ms. Bishop's Posthumous Poems - Poem by gershon hepner

I love Ms. Bishop’s poems, but I wonder
why those she has rejected now are post-
humously being published, every blunder
she might have wished forgotten now not lost,
recorded for eternity because
an editor called Alice Quinn prefers
dead poets’ poems with their fatal flaws
to mine which she won’t publish. Acts like hers
give precedence to poets who are dead,
preventing them from being ever printed;
she wags dead tails of poetry instead
of finding heads of new ones that are minted.
