Well after 2 rewrite requests, my poem 'Down in Lake of Egypt' was accepted to Every Day Poets. Thank you to the editor's there for all the feedback and patience. In the end, the resulting piece has been stripped of the extraneous elements and has been boiled down to its essential components. I also learned a great deal from this experience about rewrites and revision. I think its a good piece and I look forward to you being able to read the final product.
