Boxcar Poetry Review - Issue 23
This issue revolves around yearning. Absence and echoes. Hearts and trains. Neglected and unspoken silences. Beneath the Chagall skies.
The music and discord of self. The voices of guns. Nina Simone. Loss and consolation. And return.
Accompanying our spring issue are the rain reflection images of BJ Watkins, a new interview with New Zealand poet, Sam Sampson, and reviews of first books from Farrah Field, Emily Galvin, Djelloul Marbrook, and Fady Joudah.
We apologize for a longer hiatus than expected, but are happy to report our return to the land of living journals. We've cleared our backlog and are looking forward to seeing your work.
