I'm a "how come" kind of guy. That is why I take the extra time (sometimes quite a bit of extra time) to provide gentle, personal feedback to the poets who are kind enough to submit their poetry for consideration--even if it's just a sentence or two on what I liked and what I thought could use improvement. I am proud to say that I have never given a generic response to a submission.
