Rejection Slips Are Our Friends

Rejection is a necessary evil, and the process for selecting poems is so subjective. But always nice to get a handwritten comment.

I have never kept rejection slips. I even threw away the slip from AQR, which was hand written on two sides of a slip of paper. Well, actually, that one got thrown away by accident.

I just don't get the appeal of keeping rejection so close when I see it in this life of poetry so much anyways.
