200th Post!

I received a rejection from The New Orleans Review yesterday.

The poem should be what it means to readers. They can grow with it. If some reader really likes a poem, he might read it five years later and see in it something very different, because he’s lived a little longer and suddenly sees something very startlingly news. But if he were informed of it then, he might not be ready, or it may not be wanted or needed.

--Anne Sexton
