Let's write as if nothing before has been written!

Gary Duehr

      Dear Editor, I would like to submit these poems from my manuscript "20 Questions," which explores the role of popular culture on identity, at times invoking film noir and critical theory. Each poem riffs, like an extended sonnet, on an imagined photograph. Thanks for taking a look.
