Plus a sister, Ed. I'm also a dejected, rejected villain... Hell, what a disappointment, and, to make matters worse, I neglected to submit my best villanelle about love, which might have stood a chance...

But this evening I received a lovely email from Marilyn, not just a one-size-fits-all note, which made me feel better.

I can't wait to buy the book, and huge congratulations to all of you who'll be featured in it.

Remember, those who did not make the cut. The thing to do is complain bitterly.

You're such a pacifist. I was considering violence.

How about a mini e-book of rejects, Villainously Rejected Villanelles, launched from Drills and Amusements? I’ll start with my dastardly doggerel on Dylan.

Just received my lovely rejection from Marilyn. I feel I should write her back and say, It's OK, I've been rejected before.

Yeah, I got one too. Maybe the thread on D & M should be Villanelles Rejected Vehemently!

I’m honored to join some of you with my “Blues Manqué.”


(Note to those whose poems weren’t accepted: I hope you’ll keep writing villanelles anyway.)
