And not sure if I'll get past the 15. Went to driving class yesterday evening and my mind's been a whirligig of road signs and road stripes ever since.
Have managed to crank out 4 more poems... am going from scrap to crap and might eventually be falling apart to rap, ap and p (which means parking the brain on some blue zone until someone tows it away).
The latest poems are:
(from An Encyclopedic Guide to Counteracting Bad Luck)
9. And Why Shouldn't I Cry Over Seinfeld?
11. Translating Ethel
John Vick enjoyed yesterday's -erm- ticklish poem so much that he's offered a fabulous recording -- his voice is seeeemply magnificent: Translating Ethel
Hee. I think I'll have to thank Michi and Nathan, too for this one -- since they got me thinking about Wuthering Heights.
Thank you, my dears!! [in a Gumbie Cat/Jennyanydots voice]
Received my 4th or 5th rejection from Tarpaulin Sky:

Thoughts: O well. Back to the drafting board.
Yesterday I mailed submissions to Acumen, Stand and Carousel. Let's see what comes out of that.
