We are proud to unveil the first issue of The Mantle! We present ten poems from eight poets:
The issue is available both as a PDF and as a series of linked pages, so you can read and/or share in the way you prefer. In these poems, you will find a cryptic note from twenty years ago; tape recorders full of secrets; lost cities and selves; holes to drill and fix; math and architecture; and flowers of both the metaphorical and non-metaphorical varieties.
Consider submitting to our second issue, due out in November. Until then, enjoy these great poems!
