It was a bit shocking to see a 2019 dated publication already, but it's true: We're there.
2nd River View offers a selection of poetry online, some with author-recorded readings, as well as a current and full archive of their chapbook series. These chapbooks can be read online, downloaded in full-page PDF, or "Chap the Book," which opens as a PDF in booklet form (for printing and saddle stitch fold/staple). What a great (FREE) resource for teachers! Things Impossible to Swallow by Pamela Garvey is their latest chapbook.
Here's a sampling of some of the works from their Winter 2019 issue:
I want to stay in the house all day
and read poetry from a time
when people rowed out in little boats.
From "Accident" by Nancy Takacs
January sleek gray sky, the clouds diffuse
the sun to one dull eye, & my body quiet
with goat milk skin, makes a slim seed
in thin sheets and cotton bedspread.
From "On Sunday Morning, Church Bells" by J.J. Starr
. . . I wonder if
the evening stars will be
missing behind the clouds.
I want to tell the clouds
to be gone or to get out of the way.
I want to wrap my hands
around them so badly
without hurting them.
From "Behind the Clouds" by Luis Cuauhtémoc Berriozábal
