Peter Norman, "Rejection Letter"

Thank you for taking the time to reject my work.

I receive hundreds of rejection slips every year,
and unfortunately I cannot accept them all.

Regretfully, yours is not among the few
rejection slips I have chosen to honor this year.
It has been recycled, and the story or poem
in question will soon appear in your publication.

Pleae consider me again with further rejections,
and best of luck in your editorial pursuits.

Peter Norman
est. 1973
