I actually do this with all of my poetry journals. Does anyone else do this?
I also read all of the poems in issues of journals that contain both poems and stories long before I get around to going back for the stories.
Being that I've been collecting statistics on the line counts of published poems lately - here's the breakdown:
short short poems (less than 10 lines): 5
short poems (10-49 lines):10
long poems (50+ lines):2
29.4% of the poems in the issue are less than 10 lines.
My favorite poem in this issue is "winter world" by Eric Marin. I'm a sucker for starfish, even their corpses.
