RATTLE –Tribute to Law Enforcement Poets - Issue #37

(featuring Law Enforcement poets, including Sarah Cortez)

Poetry Journal


Released June, 2012, Rattle #37 features a selection of poems by fourteen law enforcement officers. One might not expect any similarity between policing and poetry, but with reams of paperwork, plenty of drama, and a need for attention to fine detail, poets and cops do have much in common. And as retired police officer James Fleming explains in his introduction, “a sparse, carefully-written police report can evoke tears.”  Sarah’s essay, "More Cops on the Beat", is featured.
