A read of PigeonBike’s Trash & Crackers issue #poetry

Trash & Crackers, PigeonBike; Spring 2011 (16 pages)

The inaugural print version of this online literary review celebrates the small press aesthetic in both form and content.

Visually, the magazine is packed with a variety of fonts and graphics – in marked contrast to the typical literary journal that’s all about calm whitespace to soothe one through the subtle text. Substantially, the poetry and prose within is mostly of a short, sharp and shocking quality, the writers less interested in showing off prosodic chops than drawing you in quickly and shiving home their points.

To complete the feel, a number of small press vets show up in these pages – Rob Plath, Milner Place and John Yamrus among them. Makes for a raw and engaging read – what the small/micro press world is all about.
