“Stand on the verge” with us and dive into AGNI 37. In the words of Teresa Iverson, “the imagination is an airy element,” and the short, buoyant poems of this issue keep it afloat as our reader swims from one experience to the next. This issue offers “Standing on the Verge,” a refreshing series of work by emerging poets and Massachusetts artists including Claudia Rankine, Kevin Young, and Elizabeth Alexander. AGNI 37  features Carl Little’s interview with James Schuyler, Edwin Honig’s haunting prose, as well as work by Carl Phillips, Victoria Nelson, Albert Goldbarth, Ha Jin, Natasha Tretheway, Bruce Smith, Paja Faudree, Gale Nelson, and many more.
