“PB & Coffee”: Six Cups of Poetry is an experiment in flash publication. With a recent half-day call for submissions lasting from about morning until noon and a quick editorial turnaround resulting in a little e-chapbook released by the end of that day, the latest from PigeonBike Press is certainly a rush, in more than one sense of the word.
As one would expect from such a quick production, the poems are a bit thin on the structural side. However, they make up for it in spontaneity and energy, especially ian hanna’s very free-wheeling “smooth texture warm” and Fran Lock’s “A Missing Person’s Report in six cups of Coffee” (which also showcases a well thought-out frame).
