I Haz Pomes

In the new issues of Bird Dog, and The Hat, and in the forthcoming 10th-anniversary issue of LIT.

I am amazed whenever my poems actually come out in journals, because I am a very very bad submitter. Terrible. I never know where to send anything. Which is silly, but somehow true. I can name about 1000 magazines, but feel weird about trying to figure out which ones I should send to.

But you know me. And maybe my pomes. Any suggestions for places to place my feeble outpourings? I know this is lame but I feel like if I actually have suggestions from non-me people, this will somehow be helpful, as I am so woefully uncertain as to my own ability to tell where I should be submitting that it amounts to a paralysis.

One thing I have noticed this year is that the zeitgeist has become more favorable to my "Applies to Oranges" poems. When I first wrote them, they were dead in the water at every journal I tried. Now they seem to get picked up whenever I work up the nerve to send some out. I have no idea what the heck is in the air and water over there in editor-land that makes squat, unexplanatory, orange-referencing pseudo-sonnets the hot ticket item this year. But I will take what I can get.
