  • Shadows of Footsteps

    by William Kofoed
    I do not know why most poets write poetry but I know why I do so. I write because a thought gets in my head and bounces around till I write it down. You could say that I don't try to write but that I am forced to write. Now I do try to write "good" poetry that people will enjoy reading, but I don't try to write poems for people to read. Most people find that they like some of my poems and hate others of them.

  • Dark Days Lonely Nights

    by D. R. Nguyen

  • Redemption

    by Eric Christopher Jackson

    "What have you done in your life that makes it seem impossible to recover from? A crucial mistake? A misunderstanding? A tendency to cling to immaturity? A row of decisions that scream irresponsibility? Or have you committed the greatest sin: Not really doing anything? No goals. No dreams. Believing life & success come easy. You took time for granted & now it feels like your time is up. Wasted.

    I know the feeling. You wake up every morning wondering: Why am I still here? There&rsqu... more

  • The Beginning of Me

    by Eric Christopher Jackson
    November 2013 | Publishers Weekly Cover Feature "As I began my journey into adulthood, I realized the persona of what I was led to believe a man should be was a standard I could not meet. I believed in God, but I did not believe in me. I felt fear. I felt anxiety. I felt insecure. And I could tell no one about it. Instead, I began to write my feelings down in the form of poetry on scraps of paper. This process helped me to be honest with myself about who I saw in the mirror. As you read thr... more

  • I Am a Mute Iraqi With a Voice

    by Weam Namou
    “Sometimes, a book of poems transcends the form and becomes pure experience. I Am a Mute Iraqi with a Voice is a startling call to memory and mourning for an Iraq that is “dead,” an ululation for all that is lost in war after war after war. In these poems, Iraqis are divided not by politics but by location and circumstance; those fortunate enough to live in America are wracked with guilt, and those left behind are trapped indoors. Namou interrogates this split within herself, with poem after poe... more
