Issue 3 features a mix of lyric, narrative and avant-garde poetry:

Prose poetry from Rosmarie Waldrop: “Parents, trees ravaged with hunger. (Erotic?) If I feel anonymous, is the infinite unsexed?”

Matthea Harvey writes of the self: “Heads in the planets, toes tucked / under carpets, that’s how we got our bodies // through.”

 
       

Thomas Lux provides a “Guide To The Perpetually Perplexed”: “Too much / perplexity and soon everyone’s head / is a revolving hologram of a question mark! / Instead: if the sign says USE YOUR WORDS, / then use your words, / in this order: subject, verb, object.”

Michael C. Blumenthal ironically observes the morality of our civic leaders: “Yet everywhere, even here, / life has its way: / somewhere beneath the table / a living hand / reaches out / in search of a knee.”
