Reject pile

I do not see a lofty
university affiliation
attached to your bio;
I never wandered the halls
of your institution
making drunken mistakes.

Your writing is not
witty and enticing enough
to share at a fundraiser.
It certainly does not follow
a mode perfected in the '60s.

What makes you think
you belong in our pantheon
of arthritic professors,
dozing legends
and dear friends
who need the warmth
of a burnished flame?

Go start your own movement.
Twenty years down the line,
I hope we can talk.
