Issue II - March '16

This issue of tiny poetry: macropoetics is dedicated to the memory of Bruce Steinklein, an artist, art teacher, and lover of words who would have loved this magazine.

The second issue of tiny poetry: macropoetics is a shout out to the cheerfully absurd, the aesthetic, and the deferential. Cover art by Thaddeus Sterling depicts a strange man whose very teeth are made of tiny. A theme of place reflects the ecocritical concerns of erstwhile poets, while lip-biting lost-love image macros reflect desire almost teenage in its longing, authentic and actualized through iPhone text edits. Featured macro-artist Luna Temple strives for an out, while Kenzie Allen considers shades of skin, racial affinity, and being Oneida. Erika Wurth depicts the loneliness of a train passing in the small hours as Jamie Lyon remembers the first months of falling in love.
