A Sample from the Editor, A.J. Huffman

Bleached [F]Right

Three stark featherlings
                                        fall like snow
of down along a branch’s widowed edge . . .

Their silent mobility speaks:  volumes
of calculated caution.  Grown on a wind
‘s wing, the triad clicks.  Harmonizing
eye over beak.  Learning the burn
[ed language] of synchronicity.
                                                     Flutter . . . Glide . . .
                                                     Flutter . . . Glide . . .
A twisted shuffle stutters: s s s s s s s south
for (safety? and) solace beyond the basic
tickle of ‘flauge . . .

Understanding is reached.  Destination
disbands.  Solidarity hangs:  home-
less as a tree.
