  • 6 & 7 – Emel Karakozak

  • Grounded & What I Carry – Carolyn Adams

    Grounded I remove my shoes, lean back to watch the clouds converging. I miss cruising up there through vapor layers. I miss the sun, in blazes under a plane wing.

  • Going Home for Christmas / Going South- Christine Pennylegion

    The train took us back in time, traveling from snow-capped trees, frozen rivers, ice like spears— journeying into a sunset which burst on our cloud-worn eyes, spring-like, barely remembered.
