Outdone
By Pete Lee


The way the magazine -
a contributor's copy of
which I've just received
in the mail - couples
its poems with the poets'
names, is confusing.
I show my wife my latest
publishing achievement,
hand her the magazine
open to the page
displaying my brilliant work.
She reads aloud the poem
directly above mine - one
by somebody else nobody
ever heard of - looks back
up at me, eyes shining,
and says, "Honey, you really
outdid yourself this time!"
