from the umpteenth floor

The journal Silk Road accepted my poem High Heeled. Silk Road aims to publish poems about "place," and I figured being in high heels is a kind of place.

Elsewhere I got a rejection from Rougarou. That's right, the doping results came in the poems were disqualified from competition.

Also Heliotrope sent me a rejection. The handwritten slip came two years and one month after I submitted, beating a previous record. I wonder why folks bother at that point. Nice journal, though!

I did! I did inquire after 10 mos or so and when a few more months yielded no response to that either, I'm sure I withdrew the poems. Two were later published by Third Coast, and another by kaleidowhirl.

ps - i never wear high heels either. but i do wish i were taller. and prettier. and had better teeth. and breasts. and curly hair. laugh.

Congratulations on Silk Road, Sarah. I know Jeannine Hall Gailey is associated with that journal. Good show!

And just for the record, ladies, High Heels are a place I refuse to go as well... :-)
