    ive worked for a couple publishers in the past, so please believe me when i say.......

    you will never be published.

    the only possible way is if you get in on of those huge editions of poetry that have like 5000 poems in them, thats basically just a scam, because you have to pay 50 bucks to get a copy of the fuckin book. so yea, you should look into one of those maybe.

    i am published.

    in 5th grade we all had to write haikus. then the teacher sent them off to be submitted for a childrens poetry book.

    like 5 people in my class got in the book. it was a pretty good book and weird seeing me and my classmates in the book.

    but yeah i think the book was like $50 for a fairly small book.
    looking back on it they probably publish alot of them, and then figure that just by having 500 poems practically guarantees 500 sold right off the bat. i dunno.

    Step 1: Don't live with your parents. People like struggling poets, not someone talking about how moms mixed up your colored and whites.

    Step 2: Write about something people will actually want to pick up. Not "I B TEASER: Chronicles of an American Wigger." Volume 1: Mom's Cooking.

    Step 3: Submit your garbage to a company.

    Rinse and repeat.
