This 8 1/2" X 14" "monthly poetry samizdat" is free on the streets and provides an overview of poetry happenings in Ohio, poetry, editorial works, selections from chapbooks, and critiques of poetry events and forums. The poetry is Beat with shattered glass polyrhythms and hard edged compelling sounds, very experimental with a raucous swagger. It made me want to stand and read aloud. The cover collages are intense: The opinions are straight from the hip. Where else are you going to find a drumpoet, and a special 18 page single poem insert by Gary David titled "Bear Medicine"? "I throw dust on me/ it changes me/ I am a bear/ when I go to meet him." --R.R. Lee Etzwiler
