Editor's Note 2/23
Your date will probably keep her pocketbook and gloves in her lap during the meal. If her bag is cumbersome, though, she may put it on an empty chair at the table, or even store it under the table. "No parking" on the table!
Welcome to our sixteenth and February issue! I think the pieces in this issue offer a lively variety of takes on some perennially engaging pop culture themes, with a few of them on point for the Valentine’s Day time of year.

This project will run throughout 2023, so if you’re thinking about publishing a chapbook, or know someone who is, please keep us in mind.

With that, we present poetry by:
Prose explorations by:
And visual art by:
All the best and happy reading,
Founder & Editor-in-Chief
