Issue 23d – November 2008

The November issue has four good ghazals, with both thematic resonances and contrasts of image and sound. I enjoyed putting them together — choosing these poems to go in this order. My choices are largely intuitive; at least, I make them quickly. I hope you enjoy them.

I’ve begun putting the special “sugar radif” issue together but haven’t made much progress yet. I hope to work on it through the next week. I can guarantee you it will be a sweet issue! When I publish it, I will announce a new radif challenge.
