Lummox, aptly described by Todd Moore, is back and I have a poem included.
“[the] Lummox, in my opinion, was one of maybe the best half dozen poetry mags in the country. I wd rather read Lummox than any of the so-called high class high art poetry mags going. It's got more life and more guts than any mag I know.” - Todd Moore
