We think walls are
good for keeping out the cold and rain. And for displaying some
art. They're useless in the creation and propagation of art.
We don't care if Language poetry appears next to sonnets, or
haiku next to spoken word and workshop poetry beside agit-smut.
Our tastes are catholiceven though we're Jews and pagans
and Buddhists and libertines and run-of-the-mill Christians.
We don't care how art is shapedround like moon, flat like
roadkill, angular like love, twisted like political promises.
We hear many voices (even when we're taking our meds) and are
guided by whimsy and passion and urgency. We want more.
So, who the hell

We're Big Bridge:
in between and through and under and over. Which way you cross,
what you see, depends on which way you go. See you out there.
Don't forget to
We will occasionally
update with additional works, so keep us bookmarked. Each issue
will feature an online chapbook. We'll publish long poetical
works and serialize novels. We'll feature selections from one
of the many little magazines being published in space and on
the ground; suggestions are encouraged. We intend to update our
lists and links regularly, and also post letters and comments
as they arrive. We'll also maintain an archive of back issues.
