Hey congrats on being published. I'm so happy for you! (I'll be sharing poetry with you too this time. Blood Bath made it in.) This is a great poem. You deserve it.

Thank you so much! I actually wrote a bunch of poems under this title, but separated them to publish them. It's like an unspoken rule that you always complement really bad outfits! :D
