Burdock

Coming straight out of Milwaukee is issue number one of Burdock, edited by Keith Gaustad. It features poets such as James Liddy, John Menesini, Zack Pieper, David Stone, Jim Chapson, and myself, among others. A great little collection, and highly recommended. One of the things that makes it particularly interesting is that some of the poems are printed on sticker paper, so you can get them up on buses, men’s room (or women’s room) mirrors, stop signs, etc. A burdock is apparently the plant which has those seed/pod things, or burs, which stick to the cuffs of your pants like velcro...

Copies are $2 (a bargain) from Keith Gaustad, 1515 E. Kane Pl. #39, Milwaukee, WI, 53202, USA. Submissions for issue two can be sent to the same address (with an SASE), or inquire at burdockmagazine@yahoo.com

Yes, Milwaukee is a hotbed of poetic activity (I’m not joking)...

Thanks Mike!
Just so people know I'm only asking for 2 bucks so as I can cover mailing costs. With every order I'm throwing in a copy of UWM's Furrow which, unlike Burdock, had a budget. Plus that way people will get that nifty review of "Mecury, the Dime".
