This Is Mainly a Poetry Blog

I want to set this up mainly as a poetry blog, trying to post at least twice a week. This blog will discuss, I hope, the poetry I'm reading and the problems and successes I'm having in my own writing. I also want to publicize poets I like (especially D.C. locals and friends). The name of this blog is after a poem I wrote that appeared in the most recent issue of "The Iowa Review." Today I received a rejection from a local university journal and feel discouraged, but I have stuff out there that may have more luck. Poets need to be really optimistic and resilient, considering the constant rejection. So, that's the intro and away I go!
