Blackbox Manifold No. 9 (2012)

ManifoldIndex9
Blackbox Manifold, “an online forum with a slant towards innovative poetry that has prose, narrative, or sequences in its sights,” is increasingly becoming one of my favorite UK-based poetry journals. Issue 9 is now live.

Here’s a nice, little snippet from the issue:

To harbor the hinge, harry
the quarter moon to its spot—

To listen with your hands cupped
just over your ears?

You have this one mouth.
You’re from tonight.

from “Poem to Tomaž Šalamun,” Joshua Marie Wilkinson
