Hot Metal Bridge

Current Issue : Number Twenty-Five

Note from the Poetry Editors

BY LUCIA LOTEMPIO & SUZANNAH SPAAR

As we thought about our intentions for this issue, we were struck by these poems’ preoccupations with the inextricable personal and political, a desperation in longing, the unmasking of desire. Liz Robbins asks “How far from a miracle / am I?” We hope these poems swim toward you as they did to us, reaching for the miraculous.
