When streams are ripe and swelled with rain . . .

morsecodelettersThe stories and poems in our sixty-fifth issue all relate to communication—the simple and elaborate ways we share, or avoid sharing, our ideas and feelings. In Joe Scott’s “The People of the Pit,” two voices rise out of darkness and disorder. Next up is Sheri Vandermolen’s “Mandelbrot Chaos,” in which abstract art blooms across boundaries of space and sensory perception. Rowdy Geirsson, who made another appearance way back in Issue 24, searches for clues in an odd recorded conversation in “Self-Condemned in the Tunnelbana,” and Gloria Heffernan takes a free-verse measure of “Conversational Distance.” Finally, Ashley Hutson strums a C-chord on our heartstrings with her short tale of love and stuffed animals, “My Friends Live on My Bed.” And check out the cover art, too, because Aimee Flom’s “Sacrificial Lamb” is no escape goat.
