Provocation – Issue 6, March 2020

It will be 2020
We’re having an open theme …

Surprise us. What does 2020 mean to you? Knock yourselves out.

We’re open to time, the universe, your biome, any old atom, particle, tear, hiccup. Apocalypse, crazy hope, Pollyanna world view, astral day dreams …

We have changed our submission rules – 1 poem per submission

Starting with issue 6 we will accept one poem (rather than three) per submission. Send us your best work.
