Spoken Word Poetry 'Zine

METAPHOR is a new online magazine that covers the world of performance poetry. International in scope, the cyberjournal is the pet project of Pioneer Press reporter Matt Peiken. Peiken, who wants the 'zine to be "the Rolling Stone of performance poetry (that is, when Rolling Stone was relevant)," kicks off the first week with interviews of Andrea Gibson and Ed Mabrey, and a piece about Latino poets that includes the Doomtree collective's own Dessa.
