As stunning as some of the writing is in this poem, in the end we're not quite convinced of the success of the whole thing. We'd love to read more of your work, though, whenever you care to send it.
Now, that made me so tingly; when I finished reading I was all WHOA YES I AM FILLED WITH A VICTORY SENSATION. Elegant Choice, however, had a different reaction.
Me: Read this rejection!
EC (reads, frowns): Oh no, I'm so sorry! Are you okay?
Me: Of course I'm okay--I'm stunning, lol. Wait, why wouldn't I be okay?
EC: Because they thought your poem was an unconvincing failure?
Me: That's a bald reading, very bald! Way to behead my happiness, you guillotine!
EC (soothingly): It's not a big deal. Some people fail a lot in their lives. Just try harder next time.
