Lullabies, skate punks, video games, black Southern roots. The fierce cat within, the fierce journey without. All-powerful queens and time-eating spiders. All in language brightly accessible or twistingly different. That’s what I found with colleague Annalisa Pesek when we went hunting for spring poetry publications, beyond what we are able to review in the magazine, that we believe really matter. Read these poets now, watch them for tomorrow.
