Boxcar Poetry Review - Issue 21
This issue blooms late, but brilliantly. The world is renamed, transfigured. In Civil War cemeteries,
at the bottom of bridges. Fish, deer, abandoned cars, empty lots, and Wall Street. A constant reconfiguring, a turning again
to unexpected beauty and loss.
New artwork from Courtney Bryan leaves us "Blinded" and "Wounded." Gregg Mosson reviews Jay Hopler's Green Squall and Denise Dooley examines Brandi Homan's Hard Reds. We are also treated to a rich conversation between first book poets Joe Millar and Chris O. Cook on mystery, art, the Culture of Now, and the future of poetry.
