Melissa Yancy: "Consider this Case"

Dave Zoby: "Cafe Misfit"

Kai Carlson-Wee: 5 poems

"Kai Carlson-Wee, focuses on the gritty, visceral details of growing up on the West Coast as two brothers scavenge grocery store Dumpsters, dead rats rot in an alley and a severed head is found in a playground," writes Speer Morgan in the foreword. "Carlson-Wee expands moments of growing up into a larger contemplation of the human condition, including our desire for transcendence despite our physical limitations and time's inevitable passing."
