THIS MONTH’S VERSE: To wit, Mr. William Trowbridge‘s poem is a progressive work that more than Foolishly affirms, as one might expect, the juvenility and maturation of this extraordinary journal’s canon. Mr. Marc Carver’s poem allows one to view the world of herbaceous perennials in context of a post-racial, socially mediated age and its arrival as one of the multitude of outlets exemplifying Eliot’s “phallic symposia.” For his part, Mr. Michael Frissore comfortably apposes a sense of exultation with a sense of theater re: admirers of Soviet homoerotica. Similarly, Mr. G. Nash‘s work illustrates a historic breakthrough technically and compositionally, as well as being loaded, like Rothko’s work, with tragic and metaphysical portent. In other matters lyrical, Ms. Natalie M. Dorfeld, PhD, sheds light on a post-suburban landscape that resists the technocratic discipline of, say, Plath or Jason Vorhees. In our flashback poem, Mr. Roger Unrequited writes with admirable clarity and concision on a subject of extreme complexity.

IN PROSE: Cleverly apropos of the currently cultural memetics, Ms. Judy Maitland sharply defines a stunning moment in history based strictly on her own point of view. Apropos of nothing, Mr. Richard Cairo journeys back from the future to demonstrate a teachable moment involving illusory superiority and grammar. Selflessly adrift in the world of religiosity, Ms. Marybeth Niederkorn, Poet Extraordinaire, stretches to encompass the destruction of nuptial-based society amid the quakes of global and virtual precepts.

IN CLASSICS: Mr. John G. Saxe debuts here, with a loverly, rhymerly bauble.
