… in the most obscure literary journal in the country, BUT STILL.
First day of fiction writing class, Michael our teacher looks at me and says “Congratulations on your poetry.” I have no clue what he’s talking about. “Oh, one of your poems got accepted to Plains Paradox” (Front Range’s student journal). As usual, I stoically did nothing, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN I’M NOT EXCITED, AS EVIDENCED BY MY USE OF LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS.
I’ve been banned by the blog police from posting anything here that I’ll publish, so here’s the drawing that went in tandem with the poem. The text of the poem is written into the lines of the drawing. HAH! LOOPHOLES! Bonus points to anyone who can read this, more bonus points to anyone who has the slightest clue as to where it starts and ends.
