Small Wonders - Poetry (Go to Fiction)

Note: if rejected, wait seven days before submitting again.

We’re primarily looking for narrative poems: poems that tell a story, either directly or through strong implication. We don’t mind form poetry, but our favorite poems tend not to rely heavily on rhyme. We welcome poems over 50 lines. Playful language and big feelings are both appreciated.
