this self

I seek a world not tainted by
not held by mans ambition.
I seek a world free
of delusion and description,
and of this self.

- J.

The poem posted yesterday got summarily rejected by an online journal upstart on it's sixth issue. Not one to get upset by such things I was unmoved until I read the work that beat me out. One poet stood out, the rest are already forgotten. The stand out was Emily Kendall Frey, compelling work and can see why her work beat out my own.
As I also noted yesterday it was no longer a first run so I would have had to pull it from consideration had I remembered I submitted it.
