I’d like to submit my new
book of poems for you to consider.
An interview even.
I know how many books you must get.
Hundreds. Maybe thousands.
Even I who sometimes write reviews
get a lot of books. So how can I
separate my book from your pile?
Maybe a poem like this
but what if you don’t like poems?
So many people don’t. If I
think about that too much I will
never send my book to you.
Dear Pat Quinn how is this:
maybe you’ll like my book.
And maybe not.
Yours Truly (more or less)
