These are five poems we had the privilege of publishing on the project blog, selected from all those submitted in response to our call for new poetry on the topic of romantic love.

Quiddities (Rachael Briggs)
Valentine (Matt Robinson)
Bik Loves Bak and Bok (Matt Quinn)
A Coupling of Puma and Ooze (Rachael Briggs)
Speech Training (Maren Behrensen)

This little collection incorporates a surprisingly wide range of playful, dramatic, thought-experimental, and reflective content, as well as showcasing a variety of formal and free verse techniques. But the one thing the poems all have in common is that they responded beautifully to our request for poetry that makes us think something new about romantic love.
