So I got ripped off the first time in the 1990s when I had just begun building a career teaching literature in college. I was very young and naive. I wanted a platform for my work and found Poetry.com

It felt like I finally had my answer. As mentioned earlier, I borrowed money in US dollars from an uncle so I would get a copy of the book where my poetry was supposed to have been incorporated. Now, more than a decade later, I still don't have the book.

Anyway, I tracked down the website because I still believed that the deal was real and signed up (again) as I had lost all my earlier account info with them and introduced myself as having submitted such and such poem and that I was trying to find it on their site. I never got a response.

Well, I guess I did, in the form of another offer which says nothing about my earlier submission.

Are they for real? Well, until they tell me what happened to the book and my poem, am not falling for the same old trick.
