Query letters out
Scattering hope through ether
Rejection comes in

So slow to respond.
“Not something we’d like to rep”
Worse than no reply.

Agents don’t answer.
No reply is the new ‘no.’
I liked the old way.

Signed, dated and sealed
Dropped off at the post office
Shit. Forgot SASE.

Email submission:

E-mail submission:
Did I get agent's name right?
--Unsend! Unsend! Crap!

I did that once... Sent an e-mail out with the wrong agent's name attached. During one of those marathon query sprees.
