The Legendary "Pockets" of Naked Pierce Brosnan

I got the super-greatest email from Hayden's Ferry Review on Sunday, accepting my poem "The Too-Long Grass, the Silverback, the Legendary Pockets of Naked Crusoe" for use in the Fall/Winter issue. And they mentioned in passing that they found the poem funny, which made me so happy. Reenactment!

Me: Thank you for saying that! I secretly thought that poem was funny too, but nobody else ever did.

HFR: I wonder why?

Me: I blame that Pierce Brosnan movie. Nothing funny there, just gross long hair and magnificent Acting.

HFR: Pierce Brosnan starred in a Robinson Crusoe movie?

Me: OH MY GOD YES LOOK AT THE POSTER

In your opinion, are editors of poetry magazines more or less insane than the authors who submit poems?

Affectionately Curious,

Considerably less so, in the aggregate--especially if I'm Exhibit A. I mean, I just sent out a submission yesterday where I signed myself:

Splendid,

Actually, it was:

Splendid!

Ah yes. Thanks for the correction, Mister Manager.

I also think you are splendid! Not that you need me to sign off on it or anything.

Yeah, my splendidness is pretty much a basic Encyclopedia Fact at this point.
