Issue 1 features a mix of lyric, narrative and avant-garde poetry:

The wonderfully comic sensibilities of Amiri Baraka: “I get horrible letters /  From Ghosts / Demanding / Money.”

Roger Weingarten's poignant narrative poem about fathers: “Into the no man’s land / behind the flimsy curtain of my / resolve not to let them / get to me.”

   
                 

Dean Young writes in an echo of the New York School: “I don’t ask for much: a little cleavage, / the honey of deconstruction to go along / with my cereal but some­thing’s scorched / my curtsey, one of my eyes’s funny.”

Postmodernism from Gail Wronsky: “She’s // greasy as a melancholy     rhyme. What / self-esteems are     each day, paradoxically, / dismantled       in her beehive?”

A lyric from Amy Uyematsu almost haiku-like in its stripped-down beauty: “each rain / drop grows / louder? / no, hear / the drown of / my heart.”
