Issue 5 features a mix of lyric, narrative and avant-garde poetry:

An incantatory love poem from Olena Kalytiak Davis: “I did not chose to lose / but choosing loomed / and rose // and momentarily / something in my unfroze // moved, I made my move.”

   
 

Daneen Wardrop writes extended narratives of the Civil War: “Sometimes I watch the cavalry horses, proud, wheeling, powerful, and I grieve their innocence”

Michael Burkard’s tales of the quotidian: “today was a brief misread / which I’m doing a lot of lately (the years / and the eyes or the lack of eyeglasses, / remember)…”

Rodrigo Toscano writes from the post-avant: “balm? // balm…and buggin. / buggin already, uh? // buggin.// and ‘buggin’s’ / ‘balm’ too?”
