Tipton Poetry Journal Editor’s Note Tipton Poetry Journal, located in the heartland of the Midwest, publishes quality poetry from Indiana and around the world. Welcome to our 29th issue, in which we once again publish a book review – this time a poetry chapbook (Dark Leaves, Strange Light) by Tom Raithel, a poet from Evansville, Indiana. Going forward we will consider book reviews if the author has previously been published in TPJ and if the book is recent.
