Good poem. I had forgotten how bad the Slate message board commenters were at poetry criticism!

Greg said...

Congrats & thanks for posting the link. It gave me the idea to submit there. Good poem, too, BTW.

Huzzah! Helluva poem, SB.

Nick said...

Thanks for taking a look, everyone! And to think, it started out as a NaPoWriMo draft...

...also, SO submit to Slate. They pay $250 a poem, and the editors are very professional and nice. You can't beat it.

Steve: I didn't even KNOW Slate had discussion boards on poems. I'm glad to know, but it didn't take more than a 10-second look for me to realize reading it would be demoralizing. I've stayed away so far. = )

Congratulations!

Sandra said...

Thanks again, everybody. I couldn't ask for a better Christmas gift than the support of poet-folks. = )

Stunning poem, Sandra! One of your best, IMO. Steven's right though...holy cow, many of the Slate board critiques are guffaw-worthy...

Steven D. Schroeder said...

Like when they repeatedly refer to the poem as "cryptic"? Or the poster whose lengthy explication makes the poem an autobiographical narrative with Sandra born during World War I? Nah, those are spot-on!
