from "Changing the Rear Brakes, I Watch My Death Approach"
by Mike Good
you must realize that there are no punch cards / to measure the dollars saved or lost. There is only rain / sleeting across the roof, falling from that front porch
from "Often in Dreams She was My Girlfriend Until I Remembered, Still Asleep, That it Wasn't Okay"
by Melissa Crowe
She introduced me, / kid from a canned-fruit-cocktail family, / to the pomegranate, its pressed paper rind, / those nestled ruby cells, each with a seed / that nearly filled it.
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).
