I'm the Author of a poem, entitled "Petals" published in the "Natures Echos" volume this February, apparently. The copy of the poem was not edited correctly, and numerous attempts to contact poetry.com to correct the formatting before publication were not fruitful. poetry.com locked me out of the internet web site, finally told me that "the password for your account will be active in a few months". The poem, if it actually HAS been published (I've never seen the book) is a mis-representation of my words, and is a perversion of the meaning of my artistic work. I have not been able to contact anyone at poetry.com (notice the lack of any email address on any of their sites) and telephone calls have been diverted or ignored. Since I am the Author of this copywrited work, and the publishers have not allowed my final approval (dis-approval in this case) of the work before publication, is it possible that the publishers are in violation of law for misappropriating and changing my work? If anyone knows more on this matter, i can be emailed at enuminous@aol.com
