Welcome to the inaugural issue of Subprimal Poetry Art and many thanks to all contributors for making this possible. In this issue, we're pleased to have poems from Carine Topal, William Reichard, Emily Strauss, Benjamín Valdivia and others - as well as art work from Jennifer A. Powers, Stephen Mead and Tom Scherschel.
It's been a lot of fun reading everybody's work and putting the issue together. You can select from the table of contents to the side.
Many of the poetry pieces have an audio recording that you can listen to while you read the text. Enjoy, and please share your thoughts in the comments sections.
