    After several months away from Poetry Magazine, I’m back with the October issue. When I think of October, I think of color, cooler temperatures, family, harvest, being outdoors, introspection, and stillness. You know, all that Robert Frost-y stuff. I was hoping the October issue would reflect some of this. It does not. The editor states this issue was compiled months ago and they had to imagine what people would be thinking/feeling/wanting/need in October 2021. What you have here is just a subpar After several months away from Poetry Magazine, I’m back with the October issue.

I was hoping the October issue would reflect some of this. It does not. The editor states this issue was compiled months ago and they had to imagine what people would be thinking/feeling/wanting/need in October 2021. What you have here is just a subpar collection of modern poems. Only two really stand out in my memory (I don’t have the book in front of me, so I don’t have the titles or authors). The first one was a bit of a gruesome one about a child charging other children to see a decaying horse corpse. The second was a poem about a girl who considered the story of the virgin birth a “text of terror.” What if she is so good, God decides to plant a baby in her womb?!

    A decent issue, not one of the best of the year. A few of my favorite poems include: "Jalousie" by Allyson Paty "Going Back" by Anni Liu "Blades of Grass" by Carlina Duan "Parthenogenesis" by Stevie Edwards My favorite, however, was "How To Corner The Market On Horse Cadavers" by Lindsay Slatten. A truly weird exploration of childhood and death. Another note: "I Understand This Light To Be My Home" took up nearly 20 pages. I love experimentation, however, I would rather read 10 new poems and discover A decent issue, not one of the best of the year.
