‘Biting the Apple’ by Jeanie Greensfelder

He ghosts about the house,

reminding me to take out the trash,

to push the can for pickup,

to find the paper in the bushes,

and to start coffee.

He’d do it, but he’s gone on retreat.
We each practice losing the other.

Review #30: ‘Ameriscopia’ by Edwin Torres

This dystopic collection examines what it means to give voice to America via a Puerto Rican vantage point, utilizing new forms and intense repetitions to dizzying effect from chanting and ranting to narratives broken into fractured paratactic lyrics.

Review #26: ‘Sun Bear’ by Matthew Zapruder

Literary history will be merciless when it comes to our posthumous standing, most all of us surely to be erased, consigned to a dusty footnote in contemporary culture’s vast forgotten tomes, if that.
