Poetry Only

Spring 2015 · Vol. 37 No. 4

Is the phrase “Poetry Only” a description or an imperative? Other issues of CV2 provide a way into a poem’s labyrinth with interviews, articles, and reviews, but in this issue the verse stands alone. Poetry’s language is a defense, a performance, a façade; an offering, a collaboration. It is the study of memory as a second language and it is a language we all share. The place where poetry comes from is right across the street from where memory lives. We hope, perhaps, here is where the reader and the writer meet for coffee. New poetry by Kathy Mac, Rhea Tregebov, Sally Ito, Louise B. Halfe, David Huebert, and 28 others stands together in this spring collection.
