Poetry Nation Won’t Delete Poem


All I wanted was to remove my poem.
It had won a contest for a respected
literary journal.
I had to agree to their Terms, Licensing
for its upcoming print/electronic publication.
But nowhere could I find a way
to delete my precious poem from
Poetry Nation's website.
And so I wrote them.
I emailed them, waited a good
24 hours and was met with only silence.
Silence, like loneliness,
enveloping me,
engulfing me.
Suffocating silence, like ice,
hardening in my mitochondria.
I only wanted to remove my poem.
Oh, Poetry Nation,
won't thou removest "Borrego Quiet"
for me?
