Cave Wall – Summer/Fall 2010

Cave Wall’s latest issue invites us, in Robert Bly’s poem “Flowers with Holes,” to “look for / The odd places / In each other / And write poems about them.” The issue begins with an editor’s note that describes the poems in this issue as endeavoring to “embody that quest to communicate what moves us most deeply.” The style of communication varies, from the narrative free verse poem “Kung Pao with You on the Anniversary of Your Suicide” by Elizabeth Volpe which communicates with a deceased friend through the poem, to Sara E. Lamer’s ode to decay, “Compost.”

Lamer’s ode to decay, “Compost.” The cover and illustrations in the chapbook by John Broadley are stark ink on paper drawings of animals and rural life, lending an antique feel to the magazine. Overall, this issue lives up to Cave Wall’s reputation – thoughtful, well-written poetry.
