Headlines and Deadlines
An Editor's Day on Poetic Display


My sky-blue pencil's poised to strike,

Tearing out a writer's heart,
Counting out each column inch
And adding fillers in a pinch.

  2. Talk about hitting the nail on the head. Sounds like what I'm doing, to much editing and not enough submitting.
