A stranger knocked at the door of my soul The crash, a riot, and a loss of control And I have become a visitor in mine own bone.

We enter the summer still dreaming of spring and the wonderful content we got to review. Our theme for this print issue was “Portraits of Who I Used to Be,” and we were awed by the many directions our contributors decided to take the prompt. This issue features poetry, essay, stories, and art from 22 contributors from the United States and beyond, each introducing themselves in their own way.
