Introduction to Abyss & Apex Poetry Issue 80
As usual, expect to enjoy an eclectic blend of fine speculative poems, some are experimental, others narrative, all enjoyable. It’s always a thrill for me to see work from around the world, in this issue, there are a couple from Canada.
The eight poets and their works are summarized here below:
1.Ben Berman Ghan (Toronto, Ontario, Canada): The New Gods of the House
2. David Luntz (Riverside, Connecticut): As I Tremble Watching My Son Sleep By The Sea
3. Gretchen Tessmer (Gouverneur, New York): The Little Match Girl Burns It All Down
4. Richard Magahiz (Alameda, California): Becoming, not being
5. Beth Cato (Buckeye, Arizona): Follow the Meandering Path
6. Albert N. Katz (Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada): The Eternal Call of Wild Women
7. Tristan Beiter (Providence, Rhode Island): Fountain Found in an Abandoned Garden
8. Robert Fleming (Lewes, Delaware): Hal 9000 and David’s space honeymoon is over
I paired the poems with found art or that which I created as derivative work. All of the poets provided an audio recording for your enhanced enjoyment.
