Popshot - The Power Issue

Popshot combines the best new poetry with illustration. In this new Power Issue,  Claire Askew considers hate to be more powerful than love in her "Hate Sonnet": My hate is drunk / in love with you: it longs to slide on blood- / red calfskin gloves.
Some of the most powerful people were once completely powerless in Jonathan Swallow's poem "The Baby Dictator": You lie there, all fudge fat and circular, / built of soft skinned rolls, / a chubby cheeked cherub, / peach blossom for the soul. 
Also, Alex Ramseyer- Bache gets interviewed about his film debut "We Are Poets".
