We have been blessed beyond reason to be able to consider so many gutsy and soulful poems for this issue, and we hope you enjoy getting to read the poems in this issue as much as we have.
This issue features poems from 15 poets (14 new poets and one Muzzle veteran, Carrie Rudzinski):

Irène P. Mathieu*
* denotes poems with audio recordings

This issue’s review section is headed off by JW Basilo’s sober and eloquent review of the late Kent Foreman’s last performance. This issue also features an interview with Mahogany Browne and reviews of Roger Bonair-Agard’s new book Gully (by Zoelle Egner) and Carlos Cumpián’s new chapbook 14 Abriles: Poems (by CJ Laity).
All our best,
