Boxcar Poetry Review - Issue 19
Bee sting and sweetness. Cologne and old cars. Phone calls. Prison beatings. The body bruised, tasted, turned, destroyed or reformed. In this, our 19th issue, the senses dominate and overwhelm. The poems swing their doors wide open, ready to be encountered.
In addition to wonderful poetry, this issue also features the holga photography of Gary Haigh and two great dialogues: an interview with Amy Liann Tudor by Cindy Cunningham and a conversation between first book poets Ching-In Chen and Ely Shipley. Fascinating reading -- well worth the look. Only one review this issue, but it's an interesting look by Gregg Mosson at Michael Salcman's The Clock Made of Confetti. Lots of reviews and interviews in the pipeline. Stay tuned for more in May's issue.
I was excited to meet many of you at AWP and look forward to hearing from you again soon. Enjoy the issue!
