As soon as I read the poem "For Victor" in the February issue, I fell in love. It was so well written, really capturing the emotions you might feel at a funeral. Each adjective and metaphor-rich stanza was like a snapshot into the life of the speaker, strung together into a scrapbook whose meaning does not become clear until the end. This poem provides a beautiful perspective on a funeral. I would like to encourage you to publish more work like this.
This piece has been published in Teen Ink’s monthly print magazine.
