this self

by jhon baker

I seek a world not tainted by
philosophy
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.

  1. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because
    I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written much better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about
    this. I’ll send this post to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read.
    Thank you for sharing!

  3. Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it is truly informative.

    I’m going to watch out for brussels. I will be
    grateful if you continue this in future. A lot
    of people will be benefited from your writing.
    Cheers!

  4. Highly descriptive blog, I loved that a lot. Will there
    be a part 2?

  5. Have you ever thought about writing an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?
    I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my
    visitors would value your work. If you’re even remotely interested,
    feel free to shoot me an e mail.
