4SQ 1.5, Effing Rexroth

Interior cover art by Tami Giordano; poetry by Susana Gardner, Erica Kaufman, Danielle Pafunda, and Sandra Beasley. A brilliant issue.

The sleeve design centers around a removeable domestic violence awareness + breast cancer awareness ribbon. In other words, this poetry magazine activates. Take it to the streets.

Special issue of Chicago Review on Kenneth Rexroth.

Now that Effing 5 is out, I’m finally ordering Anne Boyer’s book. I’m glad I’m not too late.

    Congratulations on the latest 4Square.

    And hoo-ray to Chicago Review
    for the Rexroth section.

    And here’s a little Rexroth poem, it’s on his grave marker actually, and it’s a kind of haiku-like thing that will be most apt on November 5th, for those who pay attention to the lunar phases:

    As the full moon rises
    The swan sings
    In sleep
    On the lake of the mind

    wait wait wait… how do i get foursquare?

  3. Jessica Smith says:

    there might actually be a couple of extra copies of this issue. I’ll put you on the list along with Steve and Jill; it’ll be $5. after i send out the subscriber copies tomorrow i’ll post whether there are extra. i can’t do math. but i think there are 3-5 extra.

    hmm, did i miss a foursquare? the last one i got had the blue-n-gold lady. is this the one after that?

  5. Jessica Smith says:

    hm shanna… yes, there was a hedgehog issue for september. don’t worry, i’ll figure it out.

  6. Jess says:

    I have a friend who has been coveting my foursquare and would probably jump on a spare issue. Her name is Shannon Smith, if you would add her to the list…

  7. Jessica Smith says:

    hey jess, there’s a waiting list, but i’ll add her to it if others refuse their copies.

  8. shanna says:

    i saw the art for the hedgehog one, now i remember it. (i hate my mailman.) 😦

    Stella was due on February 29th on a leap year (obviously) but came 9 days early! so while not on leap day she is a leap year baby…

  10. DUSIE says:

    wait wait, is this issue, Oct’s issue? is there a pic list of issues?

  11. Jessica Smith says:

    susana, i just mailed your copy of the sept issue a few days ago. i’m terrible at going to the post office for the international ones.

    yes, this is oct’s issue.

    shanna, don’t worry.
