I recently received subscription mail from rob mclennan, and this time it was his December 2014 collection of ‘The Peter F. Yacht Club #21.’ Oftentimes, I am a hard critic of contemporary poetry, but in this chapbook, I had a good thought about every poem I read. These are some okay poets! I was impressed by the metrical long-poem by Amanda Earl and Tom Walmsley, which was fanciful, on all kinds of beasts, and especially squirrels. It was fun. I also liked Karen Massey’s poems quite a lot. Although sometimes I found myself thinking that these poets could have tweaked their poems’ endings a bit more, on the whole, I liked this issue. Thanks rob.
