SHE SAID, THE FUTURE OF POETRY DOES NOT INCLUDE ME

Yes, it happened this way.

When I sent my first poetry book

to poets, both famous and unknown

I only heard from one poet.

She was a very famous poet.

She only typed a few words:

THE FUTURE OF POETRY

DOES NOT INCLUDE YOU.

What can I say other than

that did not make my day.

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
