“A Tribe Called Boulder: My Introduction to Boulder Poetry” by Brice Maiurro

“There’s a bunch of poets who meet down a back alley at midnight when there’s a full moon to read poems,” said Sarah. “No, there’s not,” I said. “Yeah, there is. I’ve been to it.” I’d not really been up to Boulder very often. There was maybe one time when I was almost 21 when …

Submissions for LoveShovelReview camp edition due TOMORROW!!

By UrWill Rocks! Rising high up above, the waxing Moon… The North American black bear visited summer poetry camp a few times this year; always by itself, generally around midnight, and never afraid.

“John Carpenter’s ‘The Skyline House” starring Eric R Fischman

  Four walls. One window. They were all wearing shoes. Jake Grieco strummed an electric guitar on his bed while Dani Ferrara, in a wheely swivel-chair, passed me the blunt.
