Expansive Poetry Online            




At July 4th, two months of marvelous weather more like San Francisco than New York have concluded with the usual high heat, humidity, thunderstorms, and the stink of fires from Canada's mismanaged forests.  Summer in New York -- can't leave it, so we'll try to love it again.

Poems this month are from C.B. Anderson, Bruce Bennett, Sally Cook, Steven Duplij, Claudia Gary, Arthur Mortensen, Carolyn Raphael, Jennifer Reeser, Joseph S. Salemi, Jan Schreiber, Charles Southerland, Frederick Turner.  Dr. Salemi, in addition to new poems, offers an essay on unreasonable expectations.
