Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by Jason Kendall

Dear Editor,

I just wanted to pass along that I enjoyed very much Michael Robbins’s poems in the December issue.

I’ve read with interest the cascading mudfest after his Hass review, but even so it’s difficult for me to imagine the swashbuckling of erections that will follow the publication of Robbins’s latest work.

At any rate, thank you for providing a venue for new voices—no matter how much they are despised by some of your readers.

stuart, florida
