      The first time I met Anselm
      he had called me in
      to his office for a meeting
      I had submitted
      a small manuscript
      & figured this
      meant I would be accepted
      into his workshop class

      We talked a while
      about something or other
      then he got out
      my manuscript
      & handed it
      back to me

      "I can't really
      tell anything
      by reading these"
      he told me
      "I probably should have
      picked you but
      then I'd have to
      say no
      to somebody else"

      For some reason
      we both burst
      into laughter at this
      but his was
      deeper than mine
      more like a roar

      Walking home
      I didn't feel rejected
      for some reason
      I felt kind of up
      like I'd just
      had my class & my future
      was before me
