The dangers are legion, but I will focus on the primary ones. This post deals with self-loathing.
There is one constant when you pretend to be a poet – rejection. 117% of my poems have been rejected by poetry journals I have never heard of. I don’t think I even sent a poem to some of them. Have poetry journals joined the military-industrial complex? Do they use blanket rejections as pre-emptive strikes?
It takes a massive ego to suffer these slings and arrows. I forget who coined that phrase. It was probably McDonald’s. Fortunately, a massive ego is the only thing about me that’s big. Wait, that came out wrong. Good thing I haven’t posted this yet.

I’ll heed the warning. I’ve been delving deeper into poetry. I’ll keep the warning about the dangers at my fingertips. And will give my muse the heads up as well. Thanks. You’re a good person. 😃
All in good fun 🤩— I hope you see that.
Thanks for sharing. Keep going. xo
