What I Look for in Poetry Submissions

Sex. I’m inclined to say yes when it is done well. However, I am looking for a poem that leaves me wanting more. I want a poem that teases me, a poem that shows me the train wreck inside, the poem I can’t turn away from, the poem that calls me out and shows me some inner truth that I usually keep under covers.
