"But when we sit together, close, we melt into each other with phrases. We are edged with mist. We make an unsubstantial territory."
Virginia Woolf, from The Waves (Hogarth Press, 1931)

One could claim that each poem herein exists on the knife edge between what we call the everyday and what we call the night, that liminal space between what we see and what we sense, playing that game we play every morning upon waking, trying to remember the dream we are just now leaving, and how it will color our day, if we are open to it.

Nick Flynn guest-edited our poetry for this issue. Read Garrett Burrrell, Cynthia Cruz, Graham Foust, and Rachel Eliza Griffiths, whose poems are “are all speaking from some otherside, some subterranean, somewhere outside the chatter.”
