WILDE OAKS Vol. 2, #1, Summer 1993

175 Stockton Ave.
San José CA, 95126

108 pp., $12.00

Published by the Billy DeFrank Lesbian & Gay Community Center, this one's for lovers, but not necessarily poetry lovers. Heartfelt & sincere, like love poems from a childhood sweetheart that you might have saved because of who they're from, rather than what they are. A fair share of broken-heart laments as well. This review is not a pan, but to suggest that the heart of the matter here is the content (&, to some extent, the audience) and not the form, and that that content is targeted at a fairly specific audience.--luigi
