Dear Reader

Dear Reader–
Life is a process of mixed signals. Everything we communicate is a process of connotation and translation, a mediating between what we mean and how we’re perceived, a semiotic web spun in infinite meanings by unknowable amounts of spiders. We offer these stories and poems and photographs, these Selected Theories of Mismanaged affairs, as portraits of and ways to help you traverse the mixed signals inherent in our lives.

Dear Reader

Clive Barker, in his novel The Thief of Always, wrote, “The great grey beast of February had eaten Harvey Swick alive.” What unfolds against the backdrop of winter’s last gasp is Harvey’s panoply of discovery and discord. In this issue, Maddening the Sacred Eulogy, we hope you find yourself initiated into your own journey through the end of Winter into Spring.

Dear Reader

Dear reader,

For the onset of winter, we bring you stories to curl up with by the fire, or the crackle of a digital fire on your laptop screen near a space heater, or maybe at least with a blanket somewhere in the room. May this offering of fictions with a small garnish of poems help keep you warm. We’re proud and excited to present several poems from Kimberly Priest’s I Will Not Fail to Speak of His Limbs.

Thank you always for reading.

See Spot Run. Free creativity.

Dear reader–

Retinal Murk. Autumn As Infinite Repetition.

The annual transformation of leaves into color and motion, the slow rains– every incarnation of the season washing past in the mind’s eye simultaneously. All of your life has led up to this point, this instant of reading– we hope the art in this issue will help carry you beyond it.

We’re excited to debut three poems by Jamaal May, from his upcoming collection, The Big Book of Exist Strategies, and to present four poems from Dennis Hinrichsen’s new collection, Skin Music, alongside Mika Yamamoto’s Morning Rituals.

This issue also features our further exhibition of art therapy student Annamarie Williams “Art for the Heart“ series.

See Spot Run. Free creativity.
