issue #19 - Beyond the Silence

the absence of sound. refusal or failure to speak out. a period of time without speech or noise.

and beyond the silence?
unified fields. and voids
. a terrible beauty. and a claustrophobic little boy. flowers. and a meeting with Oba-chan. the shape of grief. and the way it should be. the season's solace. and rain, rain... 

yes, this one is a vast issue, both in theme and in size. it also marks a new level: again, there was a new peak of submissions. plus, blueprintreview was listed as one of the 100 favorite online journals by the Women's Poetry Listserv. parallel to that, i received my first hate-mail. (karmic balance, i guess). 

here the shortcut: beyond the silence

and here the quick guide to the issue:  
to start the silence, erase all the sacred texts.
to end it, remember the things you know by heart.
