The Bad News:
Thanks for submitting. Unfortunately, the poems you sent aren’t quite right for Knockout. I did like the last five lines of “Gay Poetry” quite a lot. I wish you the best of luck in placing the poems elsewhere. You’re more than welcome to send more poems for consideration.
Oh well. Chin up. Pen up. Keep on.
The Good News:
Yesterday, I received a new phone– thanks mom and dad. I’m the proud owner of a Samsung Blackjack. A few months ago I accidentally destroyed my phone, and I’ve been using a cheap to-go phone. Now, I have the luxury of unlimited internet access and 1500 text messages. Spiffy.
