The 50 Ft. Tall Woman in Love
The new issue of Cutthroat, edited by Split This Rock featured poet Pamela Uschuk, is available to download from their website. I haven't read it all yet, but I did read the marvelous poem by Paul Guest, "The 50 Ft. Tall Woman in Love," that begins with this memorable line, "O Steve Martin, let's get small, both of us..." and is meditation on gender and the nuclear bomb and pop culture. Very cool.
The issue also includes some wonderful visual art and a feature of two Tibetan poets in exile, Lhasang Tsering and Tenzen Tsundue.
