Company. How is company similar to a poetry submission?

Expectation. Time sensitive. In short, the deadline. You use what is on hand/at hand. You put experience to the test and say (perhaps, at least for the moment) it is finished. At least for now. So, let's sit down & taste what has been written. Based on these principles, wouldn't you say that company and poetry readings have much in common?

  1. Hypotheticals (continued)

    Reasoning over the breakfast table
    when your letter arrived
    I left it there in the sun to gather warmth
    and went out to find some berries

    the pie that night was fresh and sweet
    all the butter melted into the crust
    and I remembered a faraway place
    when I didn't know you yet
