Hollyridge Press is proud to announce the second issue of its poetry journal—88: A Journal of Contemporary American Poetry. Published as an annual, 88 presents the best in new poetry from both established and emerging writers plus essays on poetry and poetics, and reviews.

     

Issue 2 features a mix of lyric, narrative and avant-garde poetry:

Prose poetry from Ron Silliman: “Between high rises, the Kingdome peeks through, doomed palace. Think: if the coast is to the right, I’m facing south.”

Terrance Hayes writes of a family gathering: “Someone played a melody / using only the black keys. / My cousins & I thought // the world had finished spinning, / but it had only been at rest.”

James Tate writes extended narratives of the quotidian: “A man gave me a funny look, so I gave him a funny look back. Then he gave me another funny look, and I returned it. ‘Is something bothering you?’ he said. ‘Yeah,’ I said, ‘we both keep getting these funny looks on our faces.’ ‘Well, I’ll stop if you will,’ he said. ‘I’m willing to try,’ I said.”

A lyric from Mark Jarman captures a moment with the homeless: “the thrill of breaking space, / The lowered glass between us, makes me dwell / All day on what I’ve done.”
