    Just putting this here. No problem with my piece being rejected, but if indeed (as it stated in the rejection notice) you were intending to put together a collection of social justice poetry, this implies a particular perspective on these topics, rather than the topics themselves being the theme. Knowing that I would not have submitted. For the future, if there is indeed an ideological filter or thrust involved, then you should state a much up front, so as not to waste people's time. Only posting this here so that others on this forum can be made aware of how that went down.
    You can never hate something so thoroughly as that which destroys what you love, and who is more guilty of this crime than the stranger who was once a lover?
