Sevenling (no one loves) *
No one loves my Janey. Nobody.
No matter where they encounter her,
no one even pretends she’s there.
It doesn’t matter where she goes
or who she meets, or what she says
or doesn’t. Janey remains invisible.
Good thing I have a spare room.
In case you’re baffled, just let me say that today’s rejection slip confirms that my unpublished chapbook, The Janey Poems, will remain unpublished. For now.
