I am happy to announce the arrival of Unsplendid 1.2, the online poetry journal I help edit. Check it out, and if you like what you read, spread the word.
If you want very short poems: Hailey Leithhauser or Christof Scheele
If you want poems about hair: “Hair Receiver” or “Nappy Head.”
If you want sonnets: “Parable of Farid,” “Poem,” or “Adieu Cruel Girl”
If you wonder what the president would sound like if he spoke in rhyme: “Poem Composed of Statements made by George W. Bush”
Also consider: what happens to the extra pins when you are sewing; Billie Holliday in her old age; insults in the gym; and so on. I think all of it is good, but then again I helped choose it.
There is also some cool textile artwork.
