There is a dying back in our winter issue, as befits the season. Alison Davis's poem "The Poet Revists Herself in Spring" reminds us that "The poet is always here, taking notes." But the loss in winter serves a cycle that crosses both generational lines and those within an evolving self, and some things, we hear in Zoe Dickinson's poem, must "wilt on the compost heap / to make room for parsley." The world, it seems, can be like Patrick Ganey's “Khlong Toie Market”: a "labyrinth of life death and sustenance."

Issue Twenty-Seven includes poetry and prose from Daniel Bailey, Becky Boling, Beth Copeland, Alison Davis, Zoe Dickinson, Patrick Ganey, Gabby Gilliam, Jack Granath, D. E. Green, Paul Ilechko, Michael McCormick, Steve McCown, Karla Linn Merrifield, Andi Myles, James B. Nicola, Patrick T. Reardon, Julie A. Ryan, Louise Robertson, Jane Rosenberg LaForge, L. G. Rymond, Greg Sendi, Kevin Winchester, and Marly Youmans. The issue also includes images by W Goodwin, whose work serves as this season's cover.
