AGNI doesn't want the poems I sent them. I have determined that it is completely unpredictable what poems people will like. I had convinced myself that this batch of poems were some of the best I'd every written, and they've been rejected at least a half-dozen times now. Admittedly, AGNI might not be the best audience for my work, but I did think these poems erred on the more traditional side.
I have a confession to make. I have been slacking: with writing, submitting and posting on this blog. I've been reading a whole bunch, but I need to get my act together. Maybe now that I said it out loud, I will actually make good on my intentions of fixing my practices up.
Whew. That felt good. Back to work.
