from "After Reading the Poems of Tada Chimako"
by Justin Evans
New forest growth requires decades of patience / waiting for rot to break away from the canopy / letting sunlight rest on the ground // and sometimes it takes fire
from "sade & stevie sonnet sequence"
by Skye Jackson
i look for a man who was never there / i call in sick as my bent body roars / there are certain debts only women pay / who did i destroy? myself, you or us?
from "A cube who is growing. and growing unsure of himself. #8"
by Sean Cho A.
in the absence of clouds: / the sun is showing even it has limits. two young lovers / hold bare hands beside the lake: ignoring the logic of / pockets.
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).
