Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by George Anderson

Dear Editor,

I work in a call center. Recently I shared some old issues of your magazine with my co-workers, and you’ve become pretty popular with them. Some have even taken to writing poetry themselves, as I do in my spare time. You’ve really brightened the days of a group of people who earn their living in a depressing, windowless place. Thank you.
