Poetry Crush Digital Publications:
I’m glad I know you by Joanna Penn Cooper & Todd Colby is the first of a series of digital publications being released this season by Poetry Crush. When I first read I’m glad I know you, I was knocked out by the palpable joy & tension–There is a duet of logic that almost meets & becomes one– almost arrives at a clarity– then embraces that it cannot– then celebrates that two people can share this much– all this alongside Todd Colby’s artwork which exudes a sense of humor and reminds us that what we are forever-flirting with is our childhood.
Other Poetry Crush Digital Publications to look out for this season include: a collaboration between Joe Hall & Cheryl Quimba, reality TV poems by Leigh Stein, an erasure of Moby Dick & artwork by Rena Mostierin, a video chapbook from Sasha Fletcher, artwork & poems by Sara Lefsyk, poems from a cat named ee cattings who thinks he’s ee cummings, something childhood-y from Hannah Gamble & lots more in the works for the winter season.
