Boxcar Poetry Review - Issue 27

Just in time for the Rapture, this issue arrives at the tail end of spring. Like the Rapture, these poems take us unexpectedly. Death to the young and old. Love in its myriad forms. Architects and cities. Babies and old blues singers. Letters for the left behind. The missing. The unearthly hum of home. The joy of living on.
   Jory Mickelson gives us a great interview with first book poet Elizabeth J. Colen, Laurie Ann Guerrero and J. Michael Martinez have a critically rich conversation about Martinez's first book, and we are treated to three great reviews and responses to first books from Jason Stumpf, J. Michael Martinez, and Rick Kempa. We also are pleased to feature photography from Ali Wisch as a fine complement to the work in this issue.
   And finally, we are excited to note that our Interview Editor, Eduardo Corral, has received word that his first book has won the 2011 Yale Younger Poets Prize. Congratulations, Eduardo!
