In this 5th offering in Praxis Magazine Online’s ‘Around This Fire’ chapbook series, nine poets offer their responses to poems in Iskandar Haggarty’s digital chapbook THERE ARE NO WOMEN IN OUR HOUSE. Iskandar’s poems are sensory experiences – richly vivid, surrealistic, unforgettable. The response poems included here reflect the intensity of color, experience, and emotion depicted in Iskandar’s poems, as if in mirrors tilted at many different, unexpected angles.
