I woke to another rejection email. That happens. I reminded myself of last year and another rejection; a piece that had been rejected a few times. I printed it and read it again, found threads I didn't knot and tangled string stranded in paragraphs. I rewrote it. You know how that goes. Eventually I submitted it again.

It was published last month in the Lindenwood University literary journal, The Lindenwood Review. Issue 15. Page Ten. The Dog-Eared Page.
