What a week!/4th Acceptance/Southwestern American Literature

What a week! Finally received my acceptance to Portland State University's MA in Book Publishing program, began planning my first visit next month, and now received my fourth acceptance...all since Monday. Breaking all sorts of records. 10 poems published in one week. Six rejections within two days. The world balances itself so perfectly...

Southwestern American Literature, out of Texas State University, has accepted "Escalante Bat Hymn" for their Fall 2009 print edition. The poem was written on a rather strange night in Escalante, Utah two summers ago, while bats danced and cut paths through the descending evening, and I'm excited it's finally found a home. Sometimes the path a poem takes, from inspiration to words to publication, resembles just such a dance...or "hymn"...

Fingers crossed for tomorrow's mail!
