The reason I describe this as an "interesting" experience is because of the poem I submitted. The news event I was responding to was about these phallic sex toys that someone had thrown over the power lines in Portland. I have never written a poem using any kind of phallic image, lol. I have never written a poem using the word "dildo." In that way, I felt like I was pushing myself, so to have it accepted and published was pretty awesome. Plus, I got paid for it. Then I remembered that my mother would probably be reading this...
Anyway, here it is:
Still doing my happy dance!
