Boxcar Poetry Review - Issue 29
Fire and snow. Birds. Creators and the created. The body pulled apart. This issue weaves a
fascinating tapestry of science and wonder, silence and the unexpected voice, the resilience of love,
and the questions that haunt us always as one year winds down and another begins.
In addition to the excellent poetry in this issue, we are also excited to feature three conversations between first book poets: Millicent Borges Accardi and ire'ne lara silva, Marie-Elizabeth Mali and Melissa Stein, and Kevin Simmonds and Craig Moreau. Each conversation takes us down new paths, open doors into the poets work, and bring to our minds those things which we may have overlooked, unappreciating its beauty. Also in this issue: Katherine Hoerth's new review of Stacy Gnall's new book Heart Fire into the Forest and Katie Manning's review of Fiona Sze-Lorrain's Water the Moon.
Accompanying (and in many ways complementing) these wonderful poems, interviews, and review are the stunning images of Marylen Grigas' stained glass artwork. All in all a real treat.
