Backyard Ashes

Backyard Ashes is an earnest poetry and art magazine that isn’t at all as bad as one would suspect from its title. I mean the title of the issue (Breaking the Surface) and the magazine is pretty cliché; but the writing in here is decent. For example, “Kafka” by Katharine Wrobel: “And Kafka warned me that I would be lonely, gaze empty at strangers wondering if I should look for company, tell someone that we are all of the same sort — of a sperm and a maggot and the unsaid in-between.” There is art too, and for the most part isn’t compromised by Xerox’s guillotine. I liked the progression in Nahanni Young’s poem “genesis.” Overall it’s an uncompromising litmag of eclectic style and form, a well-rounded production. (Nathaniel G. Moore)
