Almost, But Not Quite?

Today, I received a rejection of a bunch of reprint poems. In the rejection e-mail, alongside the typical "I enjoy reading your work", the poetry editor said that she had to tell me that she read each of my pieces several times. Unfortunately, in the end, she decided that they are not able to use the pieces in their next issue.

This could mean that the poetry editor did seriously consider the poems before deciding they just weren't right for their next issue. Close, but no cigar. Reprints can be a harder sell at times anyway.
