    I appreciate what this month’s Poetry Magazine attempted to do. The editor wanted to show what exactly a poem can do (especially in light of a pandemic). Several of the poems (and the afterword) reminded me of my own pandemic experience: references to tadpoles, growing tomatoes, bird watching, and being quarantined from loved ones. That being said, very few of these poems resonated with me. There were two, however, that really stood out above the others: “Concrete” by Xaire - This is a response t I appreciate what this month’s Poetry Magazine attempted to do.

There were two, however, that really stood out above the others: “Concrete” by Xaire - This is a response to Tupac’s “The Rose that Grew From the Concrete,” a poem that I teach in my middle school ELA class. This poem confront’s Tupac’s idea. Why marvel at the rose from the concrete? Why not try to stop the seeds that slip into the cracks in the first place? Why romanticize the struggle? Why ignore the bouquet that grows underneath? “My Daughter Quarantined in the Basement” by Nicole Cooley - If you or your loved one was quarantined during the pandemic, this one will hit home with you. A mother speaks about her daughter’s quarantine in the basement: “yet she is sick and I can’t touch her and how I wish I had a baby monitor as I go to sleep each night not knowing”

    Presented in similar terms as last month’s excellent issue - with a new guest editor taking the reins - I came in with high hopes. Sadly, very few of these poems caught my interest. No shade on the authors who turned in heartfelt work, but this one wasn’t for me.

    Giving Poetry Magazine another try after not reading since last year, after seeing some of the poems online. Overall I was grateful for the shift and new voices. Some fell flat for me, oddly unsophisticated, whereas others were fire. Will continue to consider on a month-to-month basis.
