“Mainly little semi-documentary flash-poems that catch reality as it flashes by. Like Ron Singer’s poem, “You Can’t Write Fast Enough”: “You can’t write fast enough to chronicle the visible world…” An excellent mag that teaches succinctness, terseness, focus. No blathering, no big experimental ego-trips, just sketches that bring you into realities that are mainly art- and literature-centered but caught up and wounded by the barbed-wire realities that surround artists and writers (and everyone else) these days.
