  • Traveling With the Ghosts

    Poetry by Stella Vinitchi Radulescu
    Orison Books, December 2021
    ISBN-13: 978-1-949039-25-2
    Paperback: 108pp; $16.00

    In her latest collection of English-language poems, trilingual poet Stella Vinitchi Radulescu continues to explore the capabilities and limits of language itself as the nexus where thought and physicality meet. Gathering fragments of idea and image from a vast constellation of influences, Radulescu’s nimble, ever-surprising poems weave a tapestry that embodies what it feels like to be both intensely alive and knowingly transient.

  • Buschi’s Paddock

    Guest Post by David Ruekberg.

    In Paddock images circulate like wavelets confronting an embankment, reshaping constructions we thought of as solid. There are two girls, or two sides of one girl. An omniscient but distant chorus. A mother, both dead and alive: a ghost but not a zombie.

  • The MacGuffin – Fall/Winter 2021

    Nancy Buffum’s “Girl at Piano” on the cover of vol. 37.3 is a prelude to the trio of musical poetry in the exposition to this issue, composed by poets Frank Jamison, Tobey Hiller, and Vince Gotera. As with any other sonata, the recapitulation comes later—András Schiff through Murray Silverstein’s eyes; guitarists, off-stage (Berlioz anyone?) in Gabriella Graceffo’s “Relics”; extended vocal technique in Eric Rasmussen’s “The Irresistible Gobble”—but not before Lucy Zhang’s multi-part “Trigger” and Lynn Domina’s multi-peninsula “Yooper Love” develop the form a bit. Finally, we reach the coda, this time a scherzo: “The Slapathon,” from J.A. Bernstein.
