This issue holds a warning and celebration of the poetic act. The closing poem’s speaker asserts, "A nest is a nest," but the opening poem’s speaker describes figurative language as making her "feel gross(er) if you make me spell it out" but says "remember it," recalling her double-edged use of "Poetic justice." Recognizing limits of things, seeing their faults, while celebrating them permeates the issue. In "The Field Rises, the Field Falls," the land is now "barren of its humus,” but the speaker "scatter[s] native seed,” motivated by trust that it will continue to support life, and to live.

Issue Twenty-Eight includes poetry and prose by Stephen Barile, Lily Beaumont, Becky Boling, Ed Brickell, Heather Candels, Andrew Cleary, Steve McCown, K.E. McCoy, Beth McDonough, Brandon Earl McLeod, Sarah Orman, David M. Perkins, Carol Lee Saffioti-Hughes, Rochelle Jewel Shapiro, Eugene Stevenson, Shi-Min Sun, Hannah Jane Weber, Alexander Lazarus Wolff, and Kenton K. Yee. The issue's cover art is by Daphne Fauber.
