#3, March/April 1994

PO Box 1314
Huntington Beach CA, 92647

31 pp., free

Poems saturated with coffee and coffeehouse poetry reading ambiance, these are (depending on your bias): youthful/naive, immediate/unpolished, sincere/sentimental, direct/obvious. JAM'S CoffeeHouse in Huntington Beach seems to be the spawning ground, with seemingly the same explosion of café readings there that we see here in Cleveland. BURNT TOAST is free, but poets are asked to contribute $1/page for work submitted--a turn of the table, charging the artist instead of the audience.--luigi
