Sand and Traffic
Sand and Traffic (August 2010)
Pauline Powers Uchmanowicz - Author

From “Knee Deep in Mud My Mother”

Would you be so terrifying

The Hairpin Tax (August 2010)
David Appelbaum - Author

“The fragmentary poems are of flight, written in the full fury of movement from a known habitat to one full of strangeness. The uncanny is their constant envoy.
