My X-Files
Lauren McBride

On blue days
and Tuesdays,
I stroll among

my poems
that yearn yet
for publication -

sampling, tasting,
letting their words
l i n g e r

on my tongue,
to them

each one wondering
"What's wrong
with me?"

Poet’s Notes: In a moment of whimsy, I felt compelled to give voice to those poor poems marked with the dreaded red X for having suffered the indignity of multiple rejections.
