by Justin BienvenueTake every notion, feeling, experience and expectation you have on poetry and throw it up in the air, just take everything you've ever known about it and toss it aside. Not because the boundaries of what makes it so are being broken and not because the simple fundamentals and poetic structure are being altered, no that's not it at all. Simply take a deep breath, relax and remember that nothing is off limits, nothing is too right or too wrong or completely outside the box(pun totally intended). S... more

What emerges is a spiritual language that resists t... more

by Daniel KlawitterDaniel Klawitter is a poet capable of great sweetness and formal grace, a poet who can imagine that “We are little dramas encased in flesh— // As we discover the heart of silence,” but do not be deceived. Klawitter is also a poet of sly humor, who imagines communists responding to Marx’s comments about modest loving that “In the midst of class struggle / there’s always time to snuggle.” But again—do not be deceived. At the root, Klawitter is a passionate poet who loves life deeply but also embra... more
