First published poem

I've read Diagram since 2008, when my friend Marissa published her beautiful "Wish List" in issue 8.5.  I loved both Marissa's list and the publication itself.  Since 2008, I've probably submitted somewhere between eight and ten essays to Diagram.  (All rejected, but kindly, Ander Monson is a great writer, a generous reader and a great advocate for the writing community.)  Last spring, they accepted one of my poems and today it went live.  It's my first published poem and I'm super stoked to have work published in a journal I've admired for over five years.
