Beltway Poetry Quarterly

In the latest issue…

September 2021: Volume 22:3 Elegies, Lamentations, Prayers , includes 27 poets and translators. Lately, it seems everyone is thinking about death; dying has become quotidian and separate. One or two people are allowed in a hospital room with a covid patient, funerals go off without bells and whistles, and each of us can rattle off the list of souls to whom we have said goodbye, written an elegy for, sung a dirge, a lamentation, a song, cried, yearned to embrace for the last time. And who, now, do we embrace? Who is willing to leap from their virtual windows, rip down the walls of their fear? Dear reader, we implore you to pick up a poem, whether you believe in prayer or not, and pray the lyric.
