Nothing to take the wind out of the sails of Rejection 200, like getting Rejection 201 at the same time. I think it's darn well apropos.
The first rejection was a form rejection from The Kenyon Review.
The second was an email form rejection from Aufgabe, for a paper submission. I am wondering where my SASE is. Granted I'd withdrawn four of the five poems via email, but still.
Maybe they plan on sending me a secret surprise in my SASE. Maybe they saw that the rejection was going to be a birthday of sorts, and decided to send me a card instead. I bet that is it.
