Like two passengers
in a wrecked automobile:
our eyes are fixed
on the sonogram screen—
an upside-down window
with no wiper blade
to sweep away the rain—

This is the body, broken for you, the minister says, placing
a small moon on my tongue. I pull it into my mouth Communion 04.27.2020
This October, we’re celebrating fall with new work from four of our contributors.
Becoming A Rice Pot
She held the rice pot too
close to her bosom each time
she had to take a cup of it.
Once she would take as
much, she would keep back
a fistful. She never wanted
the rice pot to be empty. October 2017 Poetry Feature 10.27.2017
There is a dark blue bible in the nightstand, a pitcher and torch
stamped on the cover in gold. I rub this symbol
with my thumb and I am comforted, knowing another
man was in this room before me, just to
place his light here.
Please join us in greeting new contributors Dolores Hayden and Zack Strait—and a big welcome back to Robin Chapman and Alex Cigale.
