The Line-Up: Poems on Crime Issue #2

I've been reading the poems in the second issue of The Line-Up today, and if you like crime, poetry, and poetry about crime, you should take a look, too. I believe it will be available for purchase soon, and I'll have an announcement here when it is.

As Patrick Shawn Bagley says in his intro, you'll find poems about "prison guards, losers heading for the final fall, burned out detectives, victims of sexual abuse, victims of random violence, shoplifters, rubberneckers, and people who slide into crime as their only remaining means of survival." And damned good poems they are, too.
