The Rejection Slip
all would-be poets, take note!
proofread that so-called poem you just wrote!
those who aspire for more Famous Days
please steer clear of these clichés:
so what if your heart
hearts are ever in a state of perpetual disrepair
we don’t need you to tell us
who cares if your soul
or trounces? ...
those sweet summer days
we would walk hand-in-hand
swim together in the sunlight
and write our names in the sand
now the sunshine has disappeared
all the skies are gray
i walk alone and watch the waves
wash our names away
