from "The Story"
by Mary Anne Rojas
the white people thought it came in bouquets, like / wrapped flowers with uneven edges. the white people thought / it would have a bow that you can unwrap gently.
from "If I Say, the Butterfly Is Beautiful, Dad"
by Michael Mark
If I say, once it was a caterpillar, / he’ll say, next it’ll be dead. // If I say, it's a symbol of change, / he'll inch his butt to the bench's edge, //
Sugar House Review is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit poetry publisher based out of Utah. Our mission is to promote an eclectic range of poets through publishing and live events to build nationally connected literary communities and foster the literary arts in Utah. We are excited to be some of the first people to see your work and to help the best of that work become available to a larger audience.
Sugar was founded in 2009 by John Kippen, Nano Taggart, Jerry VanIeperen, and Natalie Young. At the time, it was the only independent, print poetry journal in Utah. Our name is based on both our location and desire to publish sticky, heart-racing, sweet, sweet addictive poetry. Sugar House is a neighborhood within Salt Lake City, named after the sugar beet factory of the Deseret Manufacturing Company (1851–1855).
